German commercial TV broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 has made its central catch-up TV portal 7TV available directly on TV sets.
7TV has launched as an app on smart TV sets from Samsung and on Google’s Nexus Player. Following the mobile TV apps for iOS, Android and Windows as well as the browser version at 7TV.de, ProSiebenSat.1 thereby adds further distribution platforms for its OTT service.
As a central hub, 7TV offers viewers the possibility to watch full-length programmes from free-to-air channels Sat.1, ProSieben, kabel eins, sixx, Sat.1 Gold and ProSieben Maxx following their initial TV broadcast free of charge. The service is advertising-funded.
