By Stuart Corner
Hybrid Television Services – the Australian distributor of the TiVo set top box and the creator of the CASPA service that delivers video on demand over the Internet to TiVos – has signed an agreement with DDD Group plc to offer DDD’s 3D content via CASPA.
According to Hybrid TV, “This content agreement marks the first 3D VoD arrangement of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.”
CASPA will initially offer DDD’s Yabazam 3D animations and short films and later “a diverse range of 3D content from DDD’s Yabazam catalogue, featuring everything from animation and extreme sports, to documentaries, indie shorts, comedy and music videos.”
DDD’s Yabazam content will be available for download via CASPA through TiVo on a pay-per view basis with free trailers at prices from $2.95 to $6.95. Content can be viewed as many times as the viewer wishes for 48 hours after the download commences.
