German commercial broadcast group ProSiebenSat.1 has launched a catch-up TV service bundling TV series, shows and other programmes of its free-to-air TV channels.
7TV.de offers full-length content from Sat.1, ProSieben, kabel eins, sixx, Sat.1 Gold and ProSieben Maxx free of charge, for example Germany’s next Topmodel, The Voice Kids, Circus HalliGalli, Navy CIS and The Flash. The service is financed by advertising.
The central catch-up TV platform complements the individual catch-up services provided by the channels on their websites as well as the 7TV app for smartphones and tablets.
ProSiebenSat.1 originally wanted to set up a joint catch-up portal with RTL, but the plans were blocked by the Federal German Cartel Office.
