Broadcast specialist Vision247 has confirmed the availability of its Connected Free to air services via EE TV’s set-top boxes in the UK.
Vision247’s OTT services are operated by Synapse TV and currently include VisionTV with more to be launched over the coming months. The EE TV platform is developed and operated by Netgem, who have been working closely with Synapse to ensure full compatibility of the EE TV box. It is anticipated that this development will be the first in a number of joint initiatives with Netgem for the EE TV platform.
Tanya Vidmar, Vision247 said “The availability of our services via EE TV provides us with an opportunity to reach out to a much wider audience. EE TV shares our goals to provide the UK with access to a cultured, international pool of channels that are free-to-air and we believe that this partnership will be mutually beneficial in reaching this objective.”
EE’s TV service is based on a free-to-air TV platform and comes with over 70 free-to-view channels (13 in HD), pause, rewind, record, catch-up and on demand. It also allows viewers to watch any broadcast TV programmes that are on their EE TV box, including recordings, from any room in the house, seamlessly on up to three compatible tablets or phones.
Vison247’s Freeview services streams more than 20 free-to-air channels, allowing its viewers to watch a wide variety of both UK and international programmes via the service. The service is accessible through the EE TV Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) on channel 244, featuring a network of international channels covering entertainment, sports, news, religion and shopping.
