M7 Group will add Travelxp HD to its channel line-up for its pay-TV bouquets Skylink (Czech Republic and Slovakia), Canal Digitaal and Online.nl (Netherlands) and TV Vlaanderen (Belgium).
Travelxp HD features travel and lifestyle programming from over 45 countries across the globe. The content is 100% originally produced. While the channel is available with English voice-over, Travelxp HD will be fully localised in the Czech language. Dutch subtitling will be added over time.
“We are committed to reach out to every potential traveler around the globe. We are therefore quite excited about our agreement with a European key player like M7 Group, allowing us to substantially boost our viewership in various important European markets,” commented Prashant Chothani, CEO, Travelxp HD Europe.
“With the launch of Travelxp HD we are meeting subscriber demand for a channel that is fully dedicated to the world of travel. The channel has already proven its added value in other parts of the world and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation in our various European markets”, says Bill Wijdeveld, VP Business Development of M7 Group.
Edwin Teerink, CEO, YonMedia, representing Travelxp in Benelux, further added “We’re thrilled and proud that we will launch Travelxp HD on the platforms of the M7 group in the Netherlands and Belgium. By offering a programming purely targeted to travel and travelers, the channel brings an additional value with this unique format to the current offer in both countries”
In addition to being distributed via satellite and IPTV, the channel will also be available via the various M7 Live TV apps, allowing for the viewing of Travelxp HD via multiple mobile devices.
As part of the new agreement, M7 Platform Services will arrange for the technical delivery of Travelxp HD to third-party operators within the Europe-wide Astra 23.5 degrees East footprint coverage.
