Korea Telecom launching games-on-demand service

Service to use Exent's GameTanium distribution platform and product portfolio

Korea Telecom, South Korea's largest telecommunications company, is launching an on-demand games service.

The service will be developed in collaboration with Exent, the Israeli company behind the PC and mobile distribution network GameTanium.

Korea Telecom will build its service on GameTanium's UI and back-catalogue, which contains more than 200 mobile games and 2000 PC games.

"KT customers are now able to experience the best games from around the world," said KT's vice president of content and media, Ms. Song Young Hee. "This new partnership continues our focus on delivering the most engaging content to our customers."

The GameTanium catalogue will be available to Korea Telecom customers in a subscription deal that offers full and limitless access for a single price.

Exent has also provided online distribution for Verizon, GameTap and Metaboli. In January this year, it launched the GameTanium platform for Android mobile devices.

"In collaboration with KT, we will continue to extend our strategy of providing rich in home and on-the-go entertainment experiences that integrate game play across a range of consumer devices - from PCs and phones to tablets and TVs," said Exent president Peter von Schlossberg, "all in one of the most connected cultures in the world."
