Polish commercial, free-to-air television network TVN and T-Mobile Polska, one of the Polish market’s leading telcos, have entered into a strategic partnership and will jointly launch in the near future the new Subscription Video on Demand (SVoD) service T-Mobile Zone under the Player brand for all existing and new T-Mobile residential customers.
T-Mobile Zone within Player will feature for the first time ever, the signature programmes of TVN on a live basis and will offer a selection of the most attractive Polish and foreign feature films, spanning from Hollywood blockbusters and TV series to award-winning Polish productions, as well as a selected number of popular live TV channels.
The service will be accessible for mobile devices on Android, IOS and Windows Phone operating systems and in a web version.
Markus Tellenbach, President and CEO TVN, said the broadcaster continued to strengthen its leading position in the booming VoD market. “I am delighted to enter into this strategic partnership with T-Mobile Polska to drive innovation and best in class services. TVN Player, with over 800,000 registered users, has established itself as the leading Polish source for online video entertainment and expands with Player for T-Mobile customers the scope of its service by offering popular Hollywood content as well as a special offer for children and access to live TV on a SVOD basis,” he noted.
“Partnerships are one of the pillars of T-Mobile Polska strategy, which we express by the slogan ‘Win with Partners’,” stated Grzegorz Bors, Chief Commercial Officer of Private Market at T-Mobile Polska. “For the past four years, T-Mobile has built strong foundations to carry out this strategy: the best network and the best customer service. That’s why today we are ready to offer – with our partners – such innovative products as banking services or fleet management. And I’m very glad, that – together with TVN – we’ll soon open to our clients the door to the mobile entertainment, so they could even better experience «the best network» and feel personally what that claim stands for.”
