European Originals Television (eoTV), the German free-to-air channel specialising in European movies and series, has commenced broadcasting both in HD quality and 24 hours per day.
Distribution of eoTV HD is exclusively on the IPTV platform waipu.tv of German fibre-optic network operator Exaring. Since its launch one year ago, eoTV has only been transmitting in the evenings between 20.15 and 01.00 CET on the frequencies of German children’s and family channel RiC in SD resolution.
A collaboration with Exaring was also agreed regarding addressable advertising to reach specific target groups.
Another new development at waipu.tv is its availability on Amazon Fire TV from December 15, 2016 as part of a beta trial. Since its launch, the IPTV service has reached the TV set only through Google’s Chromecast stick.
