Zattoo leaves Belgium

March 2, 2009 | 08:50 UK

The online streaming web service Zattoo will leave the Belgian market. With only about 100,000 regular users the service does not have enough impact on the market for a sustainable business model.

Zattoo offered in Belgium not only international broadcasters including Al Jazeera, Bloomberg France and Luxe.TV, but also the channels from SBS Belgium, VT4.

The online webservice might return to Belgium if it finds a suitable marketing partner, “If that works, there is chance that we will come back,” according to a spokesperson in local press reports.
