SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Adeia Inc. (Nasdaq: ADEA) (“Adeia” or the “Company”), the company whose innovations shape the way the world explores and experiences entertainment, today announced that Fetch TV, an aggregation platform for Australia’s leading content, has renewed a multi-year agreement to license Adeia’s media intellectual property (IP) portfolio.
“As consumer demand for content aggregation services grows in Australia, market leaders like Fetch are integrating the latest innovations to ensure viewers have seamless access to a growing selection of entertainment experiences from “high quality. This patent license extension with Fetch further confirms the value and longevity of Adeia’s intellectual property portfolios, including Australia’s vibrant home entertainment market,” said Dr. Mark Kokes, Director of Licensing and General Manager of Media at Adeia.
As access to entertainment continues to fragment across multiple options: linear channels such as Free-to-Air, subscription and FAST (ad-supported free-to-air television), AVOD (advertising-based video on demand), SVOD (subscription video on demand), EST (e-tail) and TVOD (transactional video on demand): platforms like Fetch are leveraging technical innovation to make it easy and quick to discover the content and services viewers want to enjoy. The intellectual property included in Adeia’s media patent portfolio helps entertainment platforms provide customers with a simpler and more personalized media experience.
