Diplomatic World partners with Magine Pro to launch global OTT service for the international diplomatic community



Stockholm, 29th Nov, 2021 - Diplomatic World partners with Magine Pro to launch global OTT service for the international diplomatic community

As Diplomatic World, the Brussels based publication that connects the worlds of diplomacy, business, finance and culture, is taking steps into OTT as a new channel, they have entered a partnership with Magine Pro to run their global service on the Magine Pro OTT platform.

"This will be a great complement to our Diplomatic World media, which is widely spread in the diplomatic community all over the world. The linking of diplomatic and political communities with business, art and culture is more important than ever as the need to unite our world is growing," says Barbara Dietrich, President and Founder of Diplomatic World.

Diplomatic World is well established in the diplomatic and political communities around the world. Many of the world's Heads of State value Diplomatic World as an objective, neutral and honest medium, Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, 6th President of the Republic of Mauritius stated, "Diplomatic World is positioning itself to be a leading media in championing the cause of diplomacy but with a different narrative.. one that emphasises global issues and also provides a voice to the Global South."

Diplomatic World recently announced that Othman Al Omeir, one of the most influential journalists and media entrepreneurs of the Middle East and the Arab world, has joined Diplomatic World as an investor. The London based dual British Saudi National Al Omeir was named The Media Personality of the Year in 2006 "for his contributions to the industry in the Arab World". The Anna Lindh Foundation also awarded him the New Media Future Prize in 2009.

"I am very happy to have Othman Al Omeir as a shareholder but also as a contributor to our future strategies to maintain and extend our position in the diplomatic and political society with our new route as a TV and Video service", says Barbara Dietrich.

The step into streaming media is a compelling way to reach new and existing audiences for Diplomatic World. For Magine Pro, this is yet another partner that uses the potential of serving true global audiences on the Magine Pro platform.

"We are proud to be the OTT partner for Diplomatic World and are already heavily engaged in preparing for the coming launch of their service. We have a wide range of streaming services on our platform, from sport, film, documentary and thematic entertainment to TV Everywhere solutions for telcos, but Diplomatic World engages in a different way. We are proud to be the technical platform for this important concept." says Matthew Wilkinson, Magine Pro CEO.

The launch date of the Diplomatic World streaming service will be announced in Q1 2022.
