The monthly price will rise from currently €5.75 to €6.99. A voucher card valid for 12 months will then cost €85 instead of €69.
Regarding the reasons, the Media Broadcast spokesman said: “The price adjustment is the first adjustment after three years, which is necessary due to increased costs for programme content, technology and locations, electricity and staff, among other things. We will therefore pass on part of our additional costs to our customers from May 1, 2020.”
At the same time, he announced a further expansion of the offer: “The Freenet TV programme line-up will continue to be expanded in future, both with new internet-based services via Freenet TV Connect and with bundles. Concrete plans for 2020 will be announced at a later date.”
Media Broadcast parent company Freenet informed about the planned price increase in the presentation of its financial figures for 2019.
Freenet TV is only marketed via DVB-T2 again with DTH satellite distribution via Astra (19.2° East) being discontinued due to insufficient demand.
