Netgem powers Community Fibre TV

December 10, 2020

Community Fibre, the London-based full-fibre broadband provider, and Netgem have concluded an agreement to launch Community Fibre TV, leveraging Netgem’s new branded solution for UK ISPs. The service will launch early next year, following on the success with Origin TV this year.

In a year marked by exceptional amounts of time spent at home and the accelerated adoption of video conferencing services, demand has boomed for faster broadband at affordable prices. Community Fibre delivers broadband packages with speeds up to 3Gbps and makes multi-gigabit speed a reality in London, ensuring the capital’s communities are ready to cope with the increased broadband demands for years to come.

Community Fibre TV will look to hit the sweet spot of a ‘pay-TV lite’ solution, offering the best streaming experience across TV in 4K and mobile devices and combining popular TV channels and catch up from Freeview Play with VoD content across all genres, as well as popular streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video, Youtube 4K, Britbox, Rakuten TV Movies and others.

Sylvain Thevenot, Chief Commercial and Customer Officer (C3O) for Netgem, commented: ”London consumers will finally get to enjoy the full 21st century entertainment experience combining award winning  connectivity from Community Fibre with the top-of-the-range TV service we have developed for UK ISPs. The service pulls together all the most popular live channels with easy-to-find streaming titles across many On-demand platforms, keeping everyone entertained on faster broadband and at an affordable price.”
