UK multiplay operator EE is partnering with over-the-top television platform TVPlayer to bring 25 premium channels, including Discovery Channel, British Eurosport, Cartoon Network, History and Sony Movie channel, to EE TV.
The move will see a range of new entertainment, documentaries, sport, movies, and children’s programming available to EE TV customers.
New and existing EE TV customers can access the channels through the On Demand section of their EE TV set top box for a £4.99 per month rolling subscription. At launch, EE TV customers will also benefit from an exclusive two-month free trial.
Simeon Bird, Director of EE Broadband & TV said that EE TV customers have always loved being able to pick and choose premium channels without the commitment of a fixed contract or a hefty monthly fee. “These 25 new channels offer something for everyone, whether you like sport, documentaries, lifestyle shows, or want to keep the family entertained. It’s a great addition to EE TV’s On Demand section, which already contains a huge range of movies, entertainment, music, kids and international content,” he added.
“TVPlayer welcomes the opportunity to bring our diverse range of premium channels onto EE TV – an exciting new addition to the mobile devices already supported,” commented Dan Finch, Commercial Director at Simplestream. “Now consumers can watch fantastic programmes from Discovery Channel, British Eurosport, HISTORY, National Geographic and Sony Movie Channel straight into their living room without having to sign up to a long term contract and at an affordable price.”
