Vietnam Television (VTV) and VNPT Global Joint Stock Company last week reached a strategic cooperation agreement to enable Vietnamese viewers worldwide to watch domestic television channels.

This will be the first time a copyrighted Vietnamese TV channel package is distributed to Vietnamese communities around the world. The package includes channels on general news, movies, financial and economic information, entertainment, health and travel.

Viewers can find on these channels latest and diverse news about the country. The two sides have plans to add more channels in the coming years.

VTV and VNPT Global will resort to the Over the Top (OTT) broadcasting solution, which has become popular among users across the world. Using this solution, TV viewers can watch their favorite programmes using various devices such as set-top-box, Internet TV, laptops, smart phones and tablets.-VNA
