W4free, the AVoD service offering movies, documentaries, and TV series, has launched on Netgem TV in the UK and Ireland. W4Free is available immediately on Netgem’s growing network of fibre broadband providers, Smart TVs, set top boxes and mobile devices. The announcement was made today by Chris Sharp, Chairman, W4free and Sylvain Thevenot, Chief Commercial and Customer Officer, Netgem.
W4Free is at the start of an aggressive increase in movies and series for its curated platform having recently completed content licensing deals with Kaleidoscope, Platform Entertainment, The Film Consortium, Icon Film Distribution and Signature Entertainment that will bring over 250 contemporary movie titles to the platform. The service has also recently added news and sports programming.
Netgem TV has been an ever evolving service since its inception at the beginning of 2019 and W4Free is just the latest addition of inclusive content onto the Netgem TV service, following the addition of Premier Sports, LaLigaTV and 20 other linear channels earlier this year.
“The W4Free service arrives on Netgem TV at just the right time adding a fantastic collection of movies and series for our customers at no extra cost,” commented Sylvain Thevenot, Chief Commercial and Customer Officer, Netgem. “We are focused on making our customers’ lives easier by giving them more choice and easy access to quality content on a service that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. By working with content partners like W4Free we are able to significantly increase the value of our TV service and the streaming proposition for growing Altnets in the UK and Ireland.”
“Adding Netgem TV as a distribution partner is an important development in the evolution of w4free.com. It will certainly expand our footprint in Britain,” says Chris Sharp, Chairman, W4free. “The key to our growth will be to maximise our consumer visibility making it even easier for customers to see our curated programme service. Being available on a platform like Netgem TV that is across linear and mobile platforms is a tremendous step forward.”
