TotalChannel, the Spanish online TV platform purchased by Mediapro last year, is adding beIN Sports to its schedule, taking the best international football competitions over-the-top (OTT).
The UEFA Champions League and Europe League, together with the Premier, Serie A and Copa Libertadores will be available for computers and connected, smart and mobile devices, through totalchannel.com and the platforms' app for iOS, Android, Microsoft, Samsung and LG smart TVs, PlayStation 3 and 4, and Chromecast.
Totalchannel offers subscriptions for around €10 per month with no extra charge for content or a set-top box. In addition, subscriptions are renewed month by month with no contract.
In addition to beIN Sports, TotalChannel offers pay-TV channels including FOX, AXN, TNT and National Geographic.
Since Mediapro announced a distribution deal with beIN media group and Al Jazeera to bring the sports network into the Spanish TV market, it has secured the channel's presence on Vodafone TV, Orange TV, Telecable and now on its own OTT platform, rapidly extending beIN's presence in the country's pay-TV sector.
