German telecommunications company Deutsche Telekom is to launch an OTT version of its IPTV platform Entertain TV, which at the same time will be rebranded as MagentaTV.
For $7.95, it will offer a stripped-down version of its IPTV service- 75 TV channels (45 of them in HD quality), catch-up TV and access to VOD services.
The new offer will also include ARD plus, ZDF select, the children’s channels ARD plus kid and ZDFtivi with a larger library of catch-up programmes than the standard services of these state-owned TV channels.
The service will initially be available on Android, iOS and Chromecast devices, as well as via a web browser. Other platforms will follow, including Smart TV.
