Virgin Mobile has become the first announced Australian customer of video hosting and analytics company, Ooyala, since the opening of its Australian office earlier this year.

Streaming video distribution and monetization platform Ooyala is being acquired Australian telco Telstra, which will invest $270 million to reach a 98 percent ownership stake in the company. This is up from the 23 percent it owned through a previous investment round.
Video distribution startup Ooyala raised another $43 million today, in a round of funding led by Australian telecom service provider Telstra. The funding brings the total amount raised to more than $120 million, and buys the company some time before it might have to go public. Ooyala customers include ESPN, Fox Sports, Pac-12 Network, and, uh, Telstra.
Video distribution platform Ooyala wants to make videos available wherever users may be. That means enabling its customers to distribute their content onto all sorts of mobile phones and tablets and connected TVs and crap like that.
I just had an online chat with virgin mobile customer service and they confirmed that the Samsung galaxy s2 and HTC one x coming to virgin mobile usa for the holiday season! I finally can upgrade my Motorola triumph :D
Ooyala, the video company that was acquired by Telstra earlier this year, has now made an acquisition of its own. It has bought Videoplaza, a UK-based video advertising startup. Terms of the deal were not disclosed but we are trying to find out. It’s potentially a very valuable deal when you consider the reach of Videoplaza.

While I'm having no Data (see my posts if you'd like) with the Virgin/Sprint outage from April 11th here in Mesa/Phoenix, AZ I thought this was interesting to tell that I'm getting dropped calls ONLY when I call sprint/Boost mobile/Virgin mobile stores and the famous Virgin Mobile customer service phone number...
Surprise music gigs and the surprise of a free gig of data is the latest reward that Virgin Mobile has cooked up for its mobile phone and mobile broadband members in an effort to be radically different from the rest of the Australian telco world.
T-Mobile’s newest wireless plans have certainly gone without notice from its competitors, so it’s expected that we’ll see an onslaught of ads highlighting that there are more than a few alternatives out there for folks to choose from.
