Swisscom has added Ultra HD channel Insight TV to its IPTV platform Swisscom TV 2.0.
The pay-TV service covering adventure travel and extreme sports is offered as a linear channel on the UHD platform Swisscom launched in April 2016. The Swiss telco delivers content to subscribers via its UHD TV box which also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology.
“The channel has a growing content offering and we’re happy to be working together. It’s this high-quality content that is essential in driving consumer take-up of UHD services,” said Peter Fregelius, head of TV & entertainment at Swisscom.
Rian Bester, CEO of Insight TV, added: “Working closely with distribution partners like Swisscom, Insight TV is adding to its global reach. We’re already broadcasting on Sky in the UK, HD+ in Germany and Vodafone in Spain and Portugal, and we’ll soon be announcing significant expansion of our SVOD service.”
“UHD enables us to provide viewers around the world with the best picture quality in tandem with highly creative content based on global trending topics and social influencers,” said Bester. “We are only at the tip of the iceberg in terms of the content we can create.”
