Cloud-based TV service Magine has begun a full beta service on Thursday in Spain and invites Spanish viewers to sign up via the website.

International media groups Chello Multicanal, Viacom Spain, Cosmopolitan and National Geographic Channel Spain are amongst the first to sign up for the beta version of the Magine OTT service.
Magine is a subscription service that combines cloud-based live TV, catch-up, start-over and on-demand programming all in the same place and across a variety of devices.
“The Spanish marketplace is an ideal one for Magine, as it enjoys high broadband penetration with a relatively low pay-TV penetration. When combining those two factors the Magine solution seemed an obvious one to the Spanish channels and content providers who were keen to be part of a service that offered their viewers a highly competitive subsciption package,” commented Magine CEO and co-founder Mattias Hjelmstedt.
