German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 has announced plans to put streaming platform Joyn at the centre of its digital strategy.
Individual channel and brand apps – with the exception of ran and Zappn in Austria and Switzerland – will be removed from app stores during spring 2022.
“In recent months, we have put our digital offer and the digital platforms on which we play out our content to the test. In the future, anyone who wants to experience content from our channel brands ProSieben, SAT.1, Kabel Eins or sixx on smart TVs, tablets or smartphones will not be able to avoid Joyn,” says Wolfgang Link, Executive Board member of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE and CEO Seven.One Entertainment Group.
Already Joyn, operated in partnership with Discovery, features a comprehensive media library, exclusive previews and catch-up. In all-around 100 primetime formats are available on the platform.
The first individual app to be removed will be the app of ProSieben’s science TV programme Galileo on January 31, 2022.
