Goldstone to launch IPTV services in Malaysia, Thailand

Bs Reporter  |  Chennai/ Hyderabad 

Hyderabad-based Goldstone Technologies Limited (GTL), a software and services company, will be launching IPTV services in Malaysia and Thailand.
GTL has tied up with MOL AccessPortal Berhad of Malaysia to launch the IPTV service in Malaysia. MOL, controlled by Tan Sri Vincent Tan, chairman of the Berjaya Corporation group of companies, specialises in Internet media and e-commerce.
It is the largest online gaming aggregator in Malaysia and has three wholly-owned subsidiaries engaged in media content and online payment service providers.
In Thailand, GTL has signed an agreement with Synap Media & Infotech Company Limited, a business group promoted by various media and financial professionals with interests in hospitality industry, to carry out media business including IPTV in Thailand and Hong Kong.
Synap is already in the process of launching its hospitality services in 2,000 hotel rooms in Thailand. Goldstone will provide a portfolio of programming through its IPTV service in Thailand.
Malaysia has a sizeable Indian population but currently only one Hindi and three Tamil channels are available from the existing service providers.
"With Goldstone's IPTV services, subscribers will not only have a wide option to watch Indian TV channels but will also be able to watch on demand movies and TV programmes, which are not available currently through any service provider," said MOL chief executive officer, Ganesh Kumar Bangah.
