September 26, 2017
A decade after their unforgettable eight-season run, one of comedy’s most fabulous foursome is back, Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes reprise their infamous roles as Will, Grace, Karen and Jack. The multi-Emmy award-winning Will & Grace originally aired in the US from 1998-2006. The revival, which will launch in the US on September 28th, will also be available on Israel’s Partner TV through their collaboration with Vubiquity, and air soon after the US broadcast.
Vubiquity, a global provider of premium content services, has signed a deal with Partner Communications in Israel to power its new IPTV service.
Partner TV was recently launched, and offers about 40 linear channels, VoD content, and as part of the Android TV’s operating system capabilities, the service subscribers will be able to add content, games and music applications directly from Google Play.
The deal will see Partner TV introduce a complete entertainment package with a smart user interface that will cater to customer needs.
Vubiquity provides licensing of premium international content, content processing and localisation services to the new IPTV platform. Building upon the company’s existing experience in Israel launching VoD platforms and licensing award-winning, first-run content.
