The launch of Sky’s Now TV service in Spain is imminent, with its Spanish twitter teasing #llegaSky (“Sky arriving”).
Sky is reportedly finalising plans to launch the on demand service in Spain over the next few weeks as a test bed for its expansion into other European countries. The service is currently available in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and Italy.
Sky plans to offer the pay-TV service with TV series and films, among other content, for a monthly fee of €10 – in direct competition with Spanish OTT platforms including Movistar Plus, Vodafone and Orange.
Sky will be joined in the venture by 21st Century Fox, who operates several channels in Spain with a wide variety of content, including blockbuster TV series The Walking Dead. Recently, Fox launched its VoD app FoxPlay in Spain, with content available through Vodafone and Telecable.
