Huawei has unveiled a beta version of its muchTV video streaming service for the Middle East.
The service allows users to access a library of movies and programmes from around the world on any Android or iOS device. The library has been designed from the ground up to meet the demands and tastes of the regional audience.
The library contains a mix of video-on-demand and short-form content for unlimited streaming. The service also provides users with various parental controls, self-adaptive streaming, and the ability to host multiple-profiles and earmark favourite content.
As part of the launch, Huawei will allow consumers to access the muchTV service free for a limited time. The app is available from app stores and the muchTV website. The service will be available to individuals across the GCC, Levant and North Africa.
The development is part of Huawei’s plan to expand its presence in the digital content and hosting space.
Huawei’s InTouch Partnership Program, which includes muchTV, is supported by some 2,100 partners worldwide collaborating across eight global hosting centres.
The company’s first Middle East hosting centre was launched last year and supports access to open developer interfaces, app development tools, technology support staff and testing environments to speed up the commercial progress of new services.
