Our aim will always be to push the boundaries of traditional broadcasting, by driving market prices down to offer you, the viewer, more choice and control. With DEOD we’ve reinvented the internet TV-watching experience utilising the latest OTT technology, to offer endless hours of exciting entertainment.”
