German music channel GoldStar TV will remain on air through a carriage deal with IPTV platform waipu.tv on which it will become available on November 1, 2017.
The move follows the non-renewal of its distribution agreement with Sky Deutschland where the pay-TV channel has been broadcasting exclusively. Parent company Mainstream Media was therefore looking for alternative distribution platforms.
waipu.tv which carries more than 70 TV channels managed to win over 500,000 users one year after its launch.
At the occasion of the GoldStar TV launch, new waipu.tv customers will be able to receive the Comfort package regularly costing €4.99 per month for free for three months as part of a special offer.
Additionally, GoldStar TV will be available free of charge until January 31, 2018. Existing subscribers of the Comfort or Perfect bouquet will also receive GoldStar TV automatically at no charge until January 31, 2018.
When the introductory offer expires, customers can sign up for GoldStar TV for €2.99 per month on top of their existing subscription. The subscription can be cancelled monthly.
