There’s a good chance that if you’re a regular Lost Remote reader, you’ve used a Clearleap-powered product.
The Georgia-based company was founded in 2007, just as networks and cable providers began to make available to consumers TV Everywhere (TVE) and Video on Demand (VOD) options. Clearleap has helped HBO, Verizon, Time Warner, and Scripps deliver content via multiplatform solutions and have helped them monetize these solutions.
Last November, the company raised a $20 million round of funding to expand into the Latin American and European markets – both markets will prove to be extremely valuable to content creators and distributors in the next 10 years. When Netflix released its Q2 earnings report in July it announced that it will be launching in Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, and Luxembourg, and that its launch into these markets “with over 60 million broadband households will significantly increase our European presence and raise our current international addressable market to over 180 million broadband households, or 2x the number of current U.S. broadband households.” Like Netflix, Clearleap and its customers have a lot of territory to cover.
