Parent Category: News | 23-01-2014

Internet TV platform Magine has signed up commercial TV broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 for its planned German service, with the free-to-air channels Sat.1, ProSieben, kabel eins, sixx, Sat.1 Gold and ProSieben Maxx to join the platform as live streams.

With the move, Magine is one step ahead of its competitor Zattoo which has not managed to sign up ProSiebenSat.1 as a content provider so far. However, both Magine and Zattoo have carriage deals with broadcast group Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland.

Magine wants to launch in Germany in March 2014. A beta test has been running since August 2013.

Access to the fee-based service will be possible by tablet, smartphone, computer and connected TV sets, initially from Samsung and LG.
