TVPlayer has announced the launch of a new subscription OTT platform. TVPlayer Plus will be priced at Ł4.99 per month and feature channels from UKTV, Discovery Networks, A+E Networks UK, Turner Broadcasting, National Geographic Channel Europe & Sony Pictures Television Networks.

The existing 55-channel free package, which boasts 500,000 users will continue as before.

Adam Smith, CEO of parent company Simplestream, said, “TVPlayer has seen significant success to date with over half a million people now watching TV over-the-top each week on our service. Similar to what Netflix has done for movies and Spotify for music, TVPlayer Plus aims to offer a simplified viewing experience of traditional and premium television content; one which works with the devices you already have and lets you pause, modify or cancel your subscription whenever you like.”

Versions of TVPlater are available for iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Mac and PC. Additional devices available at the launch of TVPlayer Plus will include selected Smart TVs, the Amazon Fire TV Stick and Google Chromecast.

UKTV channels will be limited to iOS, Android and PC.
