Eurosport 1 HD has joined OTT platform Zattoo in Germany as part of subscription package Zattoo Premium.
Only the SD version of the sports channel had been available on Zattoo previously which has now been removed.
Through the Recording function, Eurosport’s programmes can be stored in the cloud and started from the beginning through the Restart function. This also applies to sister channels TLC HD and DMAX HD that are also part of Zattoo Premium.
As a new feature, the three Discovery channels can now be streamed on mobile networks in addition to the user’s Wi-Fi home network. Soon, the Live Pause function will be added, according to Zattoo, enabling the pausing and rewinding of the currently running programme.
The Replay function through which the programmes of the past 7 days can be watched in full length had to be removed on all three channels for copyright reasons, according to Zattoo.
Furthermore, DMAX and TLC decided to remove the SD versions of their channels from the ad-supported, free of charge service Zattoo Free. The channels are now only available in HD resolution as part of subscription package Zattoo Premium.
