Spain: Euskaltel expands free VoD catalogue

April 17, 2020

Euskaltel continues to increase its home entertainment offering, and is now adding Replayteka to its on-demand video catalogue, with 100 new films free of charge, thanks to the agreement reached with em>A Contracorriente Films, the leading film distribution company in Spain.

The cinema special, A Contracorriente Film Edition, will be added automatically to Euskaltel’s TV offering for all its customers with a decoder, without them having to do anything.

Euskaltel customers will also be able to enjoy this great choice of film titles anywhere and at any time using the Edonon online TV service.

Alongside this offer, the operator has launched measures over the last month to help its customers, such as adding the Surf Channel to its TV options, the free broadcasting of several film channels for the whole family, and the opening up of children’s channels for all TV customers, regardless of the bundle under contract.

The operator has also made Total TV available on its online TV service, Edonon, which has been activated over 1,000 times in the first 15 days, so that both customers and non-customers who unfortunately have to spend these days in hospital can access the best TV content. Over 50 channels, including thousands of on-demand programmes and also the option of recording shows to watch them later.

Euskaltel continues working to launch useful initiatives aimed at different groups that need to be connected and enjoy entertainment as a way of overcoming confinement and for people who are self-isolating at home as they have symptoms or have the disease.

The current scenario has seen TV consumption increase significantly. Euskaltel has found that, during confinement, average TV use is 5.4 hours a day, i.e. 45 per cent more than usual. Moreover, time spent watching live TV content rose by 47 per cent (to 4.5 hours a day) and time spent watching on-demand content increased by 32 per cent compared to February. Time spent watching children’s content on TV also increased by 54 per cent while family film consumption grew 55 per cent.
