Activate Inks Deals With Unit.Net, Seattle Fisher Radio

Activate Tuesday signed a formal relationship agreement with Unit.Net, a European streaming media company, to provide streaming media to a global audience.

The two companies will work together to provide streaming media services, including network infrastructure and production facilities, to customers that need to reach global marketplaces. This relationship will also provide a dedicated global streaming network with the ability to reach markets in North America, Europe and Asia.

On the domestic front, Activate announced an agreement with Fisher Radio Seattle, a division of Fisher Broadcasting, Inc., to stream the audio signals of their three Seattle-based radio stations over the Internet.

Activate will provide KPLZ (STAR 101.5 FM), KOMO (1000 AM) and KVI (570 AM) with turnkey solutions that include signal acquisitions, encoding and distribution to each station's Web site.

"To fully serve our global customers, we are aligning ourselves with a key streaming media player in the European marketplace," said Jeff Schrock, chief executive officer and co-founder of Activate.

"It is fortunate that we were able to formalize our relationship with a company like Unit.Net that has the same vision and commitment to customer satisfaction as Activate."
