Based in Singapore, Kotsaftis will be responsible for the growth of Fox+, a consumer VOD product available in Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
Fox Networks Group Asia (FNGA) has appointed Multichoice exec John Kotsaftis in the newly created role of executive VP of OTT platform Fox+.
Based in Singapore, Kotsaftis will be responsible for the growth of Fox+.
Kotsaftis will report directly to Zubin Gandevia, president of FNGA. The company formerly only had a senior VP in the spot, Prakash Ramchandani, who will now report to Kotsaftis.
Kotsaftis was previously CEO of DStv Digital Media, a division of Multichoice that oversees the development of emerging platforms and products for the pay TV company.
Fox+ hosts a combination of Hollywood and Chinese blockbusters, TV series, sports and documentaries, and claims to be the only SVOD service in Asia to premiere first-run content at the same time as linear channels.
My vision for Fox+ is to drive the next wave of growth for what is already one of the most loved consumer VOD products in Asia Pacific and the Middle East, said Kotsaftis.
The Fox+ team have created a true game-changer for entertainment lovers in the region, and I have no doubt that we will build on these fantastic successes to keep Fox+ at the leading edge of on-demand entertainment in Asia.
