True Royalty TV, the first and only subscription video on demand service created to satisfy the millions of fans of the British Royal Family across the US and around the world, is now available over the Internet on Comcast’s Xfinity X1. The launch marks the first time the UK-based online subscription video on demand service is available through a pay-TV provider in the US. True Royalty TV, which offers a rich catalogue of royal documentaries, was co-founded by Gregor Angus, Nick Bullen and Edward Mason.
“Since launching in June, we have seen the US viewer demonstrate a tremendous appetite for a deeper understanding of what really goes on with The Royals, precisely what True Royalty TV provides,” said Gregor Angus, CEO and co-founder, True Royalty TV. “Launching on Xfinity X1 is an important step forward for True Royalty TV, as there is no better partner than Comcast to help accelerate our goals of meeting the growing demand for Royal programming and continuing to expand our distribution in the US.”
Xfinity X1 customers can subscribe to and access the service by saying “True Royalty TV” into their X1 voice remote or by finding it within the networks section of Xfinity on Demand. True Royalty TV can be added to X1 customers’ service for a seven-day free trial period and then for $5.99 per month thereafter.
The launch on X1 comes just in time for the debut of True Royalty TV’s first original series The Royal View, hosted by Tim Vincent (Access Hollywood), starting on February 11. On the heels of the plethora of Hollywood movies and TV series on Queen Elizabeth II and her family, this unique talk show aims to separate the fact from the fiction about the British Royal Family, past and present. The series will feature a wide range of guests, including Royal Family insiders, historians, biographers and well-connected royal journalists.
