“With the rapid expansion of high-speed broadband connections and the growth in ownership of internet-enabled televisions and other devices, Arqiva needed to broaden its offering. We have had a strong relationship with Capablue for many years making them the logical choice to expand our capabilities, accelerate our growth and extend our customer proposition in this exciting new area.”

Working as part of Arqiva enables us to evolve even further and become leaders in multiscreen distribution and video-on-demand.”
