Post Luxembourg has added several channels from Discovery to the pay-TV service Entertain Me on its IPTV platform PostTV.
The agreement, brokered by content consultant Alteox, covers channels such as Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, DMAX, Discovery Science and TLC, offered from package level S upwards.
Eurosport 1 German and French continue to be available in the basic tier whereas Eurosport 2 in French and German, another new addition to the Entertain Me package, as well as the Portuguese, German and French version of Eurosport 1 HD will be offered as part of the S package.
“The newly formed cooperation between Post Luxembourg and Discovery marks an exciting step for us, underlining our innovative distribution strategy,” said Thomas Bichlmeir, Director Distribution and Commercial Strategy Discovery Communications Deutschland. “With this first of its kind pilot project with PostTV, we are able to offer fans the possibility to individually pick and choose the channels they love and want for their TV bouquet.”
The new channels are already available on the platform. Instead of offering a specific bundle of channels, PostTV lets the customers decide which channels to include in their personalised pay-TV bundle. Subscriptions can be modified on a monthly basis, and every customer can decide between multiple package sizes, varying in the number of channels and price.
