The change-over will take place on April 1, when Ziggo will start carrying 40 thematic music channels from Xite. The cabler already carries the video clip channel and the Mixer app from Xite.
The bouquet of audio channels is available to all basic cable TV subscribers.
The Stingray music TV channels, such as Stingray Classica (formerly Barva) and Djazz.tv, will remain on the network.
Xite’s Mixer app allows viewers to search, like, and skip through its catalogue; enjoy channels curated by its team of music experts; and create personalised channels based on genre, era and visual style using its Mixer feature. Xite claim to have access to virtually every available music video through agreements with all major and top independent music labels.
Stingray acquired the audio music channels in 2011 from Music Choice.
