VOD service Xstream broadens content horizons with new CEO

Xstream is already a major player in the VOD market but the new appointment now positions the firm as it prepares to broaden its presence in OTT TV and video services.

VOD and TV Everywhere firm Xstream A/S has named Michael Rasmussen as its CEO, having served the company as chief financial officer.

Xstream is already a major player in the VOD market but the new appointment now positions the firm as it prepares to broaden its presence in OTT TV and video services.

“Xstream has already made some inroads into these emerging VOD markets most recently with our leading digital content giants Balaji Telefilms, the Star Media Group and others and we will leverage our success with these production giants and stamp our VOD-enabling leadership across this emerging market,” said Rasmussen.

Prior to joining Xstream, Rasmussen spent 16 years in a variety of general management and CFO roles at Ericsson, based both in the US and Europe.
