Throughout 2022, Quickplay and Google Cloud announced a series of advances utilising Google Cloud products such as BigQuery, Looker, Google Ad Manager, and the Google Cloud Media CDN. The effort culminated in: personalised FAST channels that increase subscriber engagement and long-term value; churn prevention modules that help providers retain subscribers; linear streaming through HLS and DASH; and ad monetisation across multiple device systems. Quickplay and Google Cloud also collaborated on multiple major customer wins, including Allen Media Group, YES Network and MSG Network in North America, PLDT Smart Communications, CignalTV, aha in India and more in the APAC region.
