Magine TV, the cloud-based TV service, has closed its beta platform and launched commercially in Germany. With over 60 national and international channels available, including ARD, ZDF, RTL, RTL II, VOX, ProSieben, Sat.1, Bloomberg TV, Al Jazeera, Nickelodeon, Sport 1 and Eurosport 1, Magine TV offers users an online alternative to traditional free-to-air television, available across all screens including smartphone, tablet, Smart TV and computer.
In addition to these key channels, which are available to watch on Magine TV for free, additional bundles of pay TV channels will be available. From April 2014, a Kids Package can be purchased for €4.99 per month, incorporating channels such as Boomerang, Cartoon Network, Nick JR, YFE and Duck TV, with other channel packages to be made available over the coming weeks and months.
Kamal Bherwani, Chairman of Magine TV, comments: “The full launch of Magine TV in Europe’s largest market represents an important milestone for our international expansion plan and the future of TV. Magine offers an omni-channel TV experience with a tremendous amount of content available for consumers. The day when a complete TV service with all major broadcasters can be offered over the Internet has arrived.”
