JumpTV는 인터넷상에서 international TV channels을 방송하는 startup이다. JumpTV는 proprietary technology 나 IPTV를 사용하는 캐리어인 Joost, Veoh 나 Zattoo와 비교해 볼때 비지니스 모델에 대해서는 회의적이었다.
하지만, 해외 사업기반이 없는 TV 방송사들에게 다른 국가에서 방송할 수 있는 기회를 제공한다는 측면에서 나름의 비지니스 모델이 있을 수 있을 것 같다.
JumpTV is the world's largest broadcaster of international and sports content over the Internet. With over 300 channels originating from more than 80 countries, JumpTV offers the greatest range of “International” or non-English-language television available on any one network in the world.
The composition of our global channel lineup is both broad geographically and deep in variety -- including top national broadcasters in nearly every country represented as well as leading regional and specialized channels for sports, music, news, culture and movies.
The majority of JumpTV’s content is streamed live as we believe people want to view sports and news as it is happening. Viewers have fresh content often unavailable through any other means.
JumpTV also increasingly offers a significant amount of programming on a video-on-demand (VoD) basis.
