TAIPEI -- Original content will give Fox an edge as a streaming service provider in Asia, a company executive said Tuesday, as the U.S. media powerhouse rolls out digital offerings in the region after international rivals such as Netflix and Amazon and regional competitors have already established themselves in the crowded market.

"We make a lot of content ourselves," Zubin Gandevia, president of Asia Pacific and the Middle East at Fox Networks Group, told the Nikkei Asian Review. "We are the biggest buyer of content in the English [language] market. We have the scale ... it's all about the content."
