Available through the Focus Sat app on smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs and TVs, it runs on Android and iOS and consists of two subscription tiers. Both of the tiers – Play TV and Play TV Extra – include access to a video library with over 500 titles, among them National Geographic premium documentaries and some in 4K.
Commenting on the development, Mihai Tilina, DG, Eviso Marketing Advisory, said: “The day-to-day organisation, flexible planning of work and leisure and the importance of spare time have become vital in the current environment. On the video content market, TV has long been determined by linear programming, but advanced technology has led to a better, more interactive television experience. Now TV programmes can be viewed anywhere, anytime!”
Focus Sat was launched in 2004 as the first provider of digital satellite in Romania. It was part of Liberty Global’s UPC DTH before being acquired by M7 Group, itself noew owned by Canal+.
