Reading Time: 3 minutes

Global B2B cloud gaming company Gamestream proudly announces an expansion of its partnership with market-leading South-East Asian telco Telkom Indonesia, that will see the GameQoo cloud gaming service extend across Indonesia for the first time.

GameQoo – which uses Gamestream’s world-leading cloud technology and games catalogue – was launched in April 2019 for millions of Telkom Indonesia customers in Java (including the capital, Jakarta), Bali, and Madura. Available on PC and IPTV, GameQoo and its selection of over 100 popular games from world-renowned game publishers such as Disney, Codemasters and Deep Silver, has proved immensely popular and is now being rolled out on those platforms throughout Indonesia to more than nine million customers. The games on offer will be expanded each month, with customers enjoying unlimited access to a catalogue worth thousands of dollars for a monthly subscription of around $7 USD.

As the only cloud gaming service available on IPTV in Indonesia, GameQoo has joined with Sharp to make its catalogue of cloud games available on all Sharp Android Smart TVs nationwide. GameQoo will now be pre-installed on new Sharp Android Smart TVs, and existing owners can download the service from the Play Store. Sharp will also be giving out 10,000 3-month subscriptions to GameQoo, allowing customers to experience an iconic catalogue of cloud games for free.

While GameQoo will now be available to Telkom Indonesia customers nationwide on PC, smart TV and set top box, the Gamestream platform makes high-quality cloud gaming a reality at bandwidth speeds as low as 4Mb/s. This makes it ideal for 4G mobile network infrastructure and, with a population of 280 million in Indonesia which does not have widespread access to expensive gaming hardware and 5G connections, the potential for 4G mobile cloud gaming in the country is vast.

Ivan Lebeau, CEO of Gamestream, commented:

“We’re proud to say that no other global cloud gaming company can match Gamestream’s ability to deliver high-performance cloud gaming experiences on any device and with lower bandwidth connections. The Indonesian video gaming market has exploded over the past 18 months, and the pioneering technology that we’re deploying with Telkom Indonesia enables console-quality gaming for everyone on any platform, with the potential to reach hundreds of millions of 4G and 5G enabled Indonesians. The partnership is a brilliant example of how we want to bring the very best gaming experiences to emerging markets, without the prohibitive costs usually associated with them. The next phase of our exciting collaboration with Telkom Indonesia will see Gamestream deploy its cloud gaming service across their mobile telecom infrastructure in Q4 2021, fuelling the explosion of mobile gaming across this hyper-growth emergent market.”

 

E. Kurniawan, VP Marketing Management at Telkom Indonesia, commented:

“We’re delighted to be expanding the very popular GameQoo platform. By integrating Gamestream servers directly into our local data centres and processing the graphics there rather than on individual devices, GameQoo customers can enjoy responsive, low-latency gaming experiences. GameQoo doesn’t require an expensive gaming PC or ultra fast connection, with games played in console-quality on the devices our customers already own, including PC, smart TV and set-top box. We look forward to working with Gamestream to grow GameQoo further in the near future.”

Gamestream offers a platform agnostic cloud gaming solution powered by industry leading proprietary technology, delivering cloud gaming at any time, anywhere and for anyone. Gamestream is accessible on all devices and platforms, including  smartphones (iOS and Android), Smart TVs, PCs, and tablets. Gamestream features an extensive video games catalogue for family and casual gamers, having acquired the rights for over 300+ titles from leading global publishing partners including Disney, Capcom, Codemasters and Focus Home Interactive.

Authorities in Cambodia have arrested 20 Thai workers for illegally crossing the border to work at an online casino in Preah Sihanouk province.

General Department of Immigration representative General Keo Vannthan said the department was helping the Thai Embassy in Phnom Penh to send back the 20 Thai workers.

Preah Sihanouk police Chief Major General Chuon Narin said that they had arrested three Chinese and a Thai man involved in running the illegal online gambling.

He said police are also looking to arrest a Cambodian broker who brought the Thais into the country illegally.

Maj Gen Narin said police sent the 20 Thais for Covid-19 rapid tests and five came out positive.

He said while in isolation, the five posted fake news on Facebook that they were detained illegally by the online casino owner and asked for urgent help so that they could return to Thailand.

“Don’t be confused by claims that the Thais were rescued by police after being illegally detained by the casino owner. They were actually arrested for entering Cambodia without legal documents,” Maj Gen Narin said.

Leading Esports Company Tier One Entertainment announces expansion to Japan
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Tier One Entertainment, the gaming and esports entertainment pioneer and leader in Southeast Asia, announced its first foray outside the region by expanding its footprint to Japan. The expansion is part of Tier One Entertainment’s strategic move when it signed an investment deal with its investors, KAYAC, a Japan-based internet firm, and Warner Music Group, a global media company that has a strong market presence in Japan.

Along with its plans to discover the hottest up-and-coming local talents to sign and develop, Tier One Entertainment is debuting its first idol group in Japan to delight Japanese and global fans.

These four multi-talented individuals are set to redefine what it means to be an influencer and content creator who challenges the status quo. The idol group will be a new breed of Tier One talents who will elevate the level of content creation to new heights, delighting fans across the globe. The first member was announced by the company, with details shared by its Chief Executive Officer, Tryke Gutierrez, during the official launch livestream on October 8. Multi-talented model and cosplayer Harry “har_fie” Field will be the first member of “Project 4,” the unofficial name of the idol group. The rest of the members will be revealed in a series of promotions that Tier One Entertainment will launch in the next couple of months.

With the company strategically positioned at the intersection of content creation, media properties, and esports, the launch of the new idol group comes along with its vision of bringing gaming to the mainstream.

“Japan is a country with a long history both in gaming and innovation in multimedia. With over 57% of its population being gamers, there’s a big opportunity for us to grow our brand. Tier One is bringing our brand of entertainment to the Japanese gaming industry. Our goal is to gather a core team and build an initial roster of content creators that will elevate esports and video games in Japan in ways the country has never experienced before,” Tryke Gutierrez, CEO & Co-founder, Tier One Entertainment, said.

“Japan has always been my second home and is a country that’s really close to my heart. As gaming, esports, anime and toys become more and more part of a gamer’s day-to-day life, I truly believe that Tier One has to set foot in Tokyo, the mecca of geek culture. This is an exciting time for us and we can’t wait to see what we can do in Japan and the esports and gaming space there for the years to come.” he added.

“Through Tier One I was able to further share my passion for video games. Now with our Japan expansion, I get to work closely with another one of my great loves: Japanese culture. Not only are we signing new talents for the Japanese market, but we’re also going to debut our idol group, which will be Tier One’s greatest expression of cutting-edge style to date. That makes me very excited.” – Alodia Gosiengfiao, Co-founder, Tier One Entertainment.

Moreover, the gaming and esports company also looks to find those who are willing to join its mission in bringing esports and gaming to the mainstream as it opens its office in Japan this year.

“We are thrilled that Tier One Entertainment is bringing the enormous momentum of the SEA gaming scene to Japan as its first foray outside its territory. Our collaboration will allow us to forge unique kinds of gaming entertainment to audiences in Japan and other key markets in Asia,” Daisuke Yanasawa, Chief Executive Officer, KAYAC said.

Tier One Entertainment was founded in 2017 by esports veteran Tryke Gutierrez, cosplay and gaming star Alodia Gosiengfiao, and serial entrepreneur Brian Lim. Together, they sought to revolutionize the esports landscape in Southeast Asia. By focusing on the development of truly talented, top- caliber personalities, Tier One’s mission is to connect brands with the unique gaming audience like never before. Tier One has over 1,000 talents across its main brand and AMPLFY, its streamer collective brand. In addition, it currently manages 3 professional esports teams under its Blacklist International esports label. Tier One has also begun developing its own clothing and lifestyle brand with the Tier One Limited Collection. Now Tier One is setting its sights on expanding its influence throughout Southeast Asia with footholds in the Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, Vietnam and Japan.
