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). It was as result of merger with Switchover Media, Cinecorn Group, Random Networks & Randomia Television Group, PG Networks, Fuei Broadcasting Networks, Ya Media, Old Dominion Media Piramca/Looking Glass Media and Canwest Media. The same day, Octagon Kids and Octagon Music (set to be launched in June 2019) were closed.

In July 2019, their division Gaga Broadcasting Ltd merged into Octagon Cable Entertainment, giving Octagon a new office in El Kadsre City. In August 2019, they merged into Laserium Sega Experiences, with their Screen brand going to Laserium International Networks, and other assets going to Quest.
