All operations outside of New York City, Moscow, Beijing and Manila City, were merged into the main offices located in these cities.

In 2018, Old Dominion Media bought stakes in the company from: former RH Channel partners RKO Holdings and Hyper Holdings (while selling RH to them); European Broadcasting Union, Virgin Group, The CW Network (owned by CBS and WarnerMedia), BBC Studios (UK); and "TVOD G.P. I" (USA) and "TVOD G.P. II B.V." (Europe and Asia Pacific), the two general partnerships that owned a part in Octagon; resulting in ODM then owning 99% of the channel's parent company TVOD Ventures. After buying out UBT Studios in New York and Gulf+Western Studios in Manila City, and merging with PowerBox Media Group, the company expanded to studio services.

On January 30, 2019, it was merged with its parent company TVOD Ventures LLC, the new company using its name as legal name. On the same day, it opened offices in Rome, Paris, Random City, Ljubljana, Köfa, Moscow, Piramca City and Toronto, with additional offices in New York (formerly North America Network Inc) and London (formerly Cinecorn Group Ltd and Regional Television Corporation).
