German pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland has made its OTT service Sky Online available to the owners of smart TV sets from LG (all WebOS models) in Germany and Austria.
The Sky Online app enables viewers to receive Sky Deutschland’s movie, series and live sports lineup – including the football Bundesliga – without a conventional subscription. A satellite dish, cable or IPTV subscription is not necessary as the signals are distributed to the TV screen through the internet.
As part of the partnership with LG, every buyer of a new LG smart TV set between August 1 and September 30, 2015 will receive three Sky Starter one-month tickets and three Sky Supersport day tickets for Sky Online free of charge.
Sky Online launched in October 2014 and is accessible via web, iPad, iPhone, Android smartphones and tablets, Xbox One, Samsung smart TV sets and the Roku-powered Sky Online TV Box.
The offering which is available from €9.99 per month can be cancelled monthly.
