Content aggregator and video distribution platform Alchimie has teamed up with German scientific magazine Spektrum der Wissenschaft to launch a subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service for German audiences.
Spektrum der Wissenschaft TV, jointly run by Alchimie and the German sister-brand of US publication Scientific American, will feature documentaries and other factual programming to explain the world around us through science and report about new developments in scientific research.
Like the print publication, the SVOD service aims to act as a bridge between specialist scientific journals and an interested public, covering areas such as astronomy, biology, environment, natural science, chemistry and IT.
“Today’s fake news and fake science cycle undermines the credibility of science and the capacity of individuals to make evidence informed choices in their best interests. Spektrum der Wissenschaft is a brand, and now TV channel, the public can trust to provide authentic scientific insight,” said Régis Werlé, Alchimie Germany CEO.
