As a provider of free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channel solutions, Frequency’s integration into Brightcove’s award-winning video platform allows customers to seamlessly create, launch and manage FAST channels to expand their reach and increase their revenue.

Brightcove and Frequency’s partnership combines their solutions to help customers create linear channels for distribution to FAST aggregators, MVPD and vMVPD, and distribution channels globally.
