Trends in 2018/Outlook for 2019

“OTT is a major revenue driver for us because of the aggressiveness of the OTT platforms in Asia. International co-production and partnerships are also key in growing the business. We also want to focus on developing territories and maintain relations with our existing clients in Asia.”


Asia focus in 2019

“Although we have a great presence in Asia, this year we are continuously pursuing and developing partners in territories we identified as our growth areas. We are hopeful that we will be able to work with China through various business models.”
