Zattoo: where Naspers should be?

Published by at 11:27 am under Europe,Top Stories

If Naspers still thinks European mobile TV is something it should be invested in, it really should be looking at Zattoo.com. Assuming Koos & Co. can (and want to) convince the board the R500 million loss of the last unsuccessful attempt to get into mobile TV in Europe won’t be repeated. 

A few years ago Naspers burnt its fingers on mobile TV in Germany. Read here and here.

Almost at the same time Zattoo started up. Today it’s an incredibly fast-growing company with an incredible product. And it just keeps on getting better.

If mobile TV has a bright future (which I’m sure it has), then this is a must candidate to be invested in.

This is how the company describes itself on its site:

Zattoo (www.zattoo.com) is a company in the Live WebTV market with offices in Zurich, Switzerland and Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. Zattoo provides live streaming TV channels on connected devices.

We are currently operating on PC, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone 7 and Android smartphones, with more devices in planning. Our small team of roughly 25 employees are the pioneers of this space and together we have created this leading service that has attracted 9.0 million registered users across Europe.

We provide a live TV service in Switzerland, Germany, Spain, France, UK, and Denmark. Zattoo is the origin and most active further developer of concepts and technology in this space. In addition, we have developed the most comprehensive recording-in-the-cloud solution thinkable. We successfully offer this state-of-the-art catch-up TV and time-shift service in Switzerland.
