Sony PlayStation relies on Magine TV for TV streaming
September 15, 2017
Magine TV is the first partner for live TV on Sony PlayStation in Germany. Users of PlayStation 4 / PS4 Pro get instant access to the Magine TV streaming service over the PlayStation consoles. This means that Magine TV will extend the entertainment offer of Sony PlayStation with TV streaming that enables the PlayStation community to watch popular TV channels such as RTL, Sat.1, ProSieben, VOX, ARD HD and ZDF HD as well as relevant German pay tv channels such as TNT Film, Sony Channel, Universal Channel HD, AXN HD, Silverline TV HD, E! Entertainment, and many more.
Magine TV’s TV streaming app perfectly complements Sony PlayStation’s entertainment offering alongside the existing Video-on-Demand and music streaming services. Magine TV offers the PlayStation Plus community an additional benefit with the “Basic Plus”, an exclusive bonus offer that includes additional pay-TV channels at the same price as the “Basic” pack. Customers can subscribe to the channel packages “Basic”, “Basic Plus” or “Premium” directly in the app with their already deposited payment data.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer PlayStation’s large community in Germany great live TV content directly from the PlayStation 4 console,” says Ambuj Goyal, CEO of Magine. “We hope this partnership with Sony PlayStation in Germany will be the start of a long successful relation also in other countries using Magine’s global video platform.”
“We are delighted to welcome Magine TV as another exciting service on our platform and to complement our video service portfolio with its live TV content. Particularly we are proud to offer Magine TV’s ‘Basic Plus’ package exclusively to all of our PlayStation Plus members, featuring nine additional TV channels – with no extra cost,” says Fabian Koba, Business Development Director, Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The Magine TV app on PlayStation provides fast and easy access to all popular TV stations. Designed specifically for the PlayStation, the user interface provides an intuitive user experience, with fast zapping and a personalized program feature to directly stream favorite movies, series, sports, documentaries and shows on the big screen. After downloading the Magine TV app from the PlayStation Store the user can directly watch 28 channels for free – or instantly upgrade directly to additional TV packs.
