In addition to the linear channels, the distribution agreement also includes additional rights such as 7-day replay, restart, recordings (nPVR) and a pause/play function.
“We are convinced that our unique mix of locally produced documentaries and reports and high-quality international programmes is an indispensable element of any German-language TV offering. We are pleased that Ocilion and its affiliated network operators are now also distributing our channels and are excited about the partnership,” said Dr Patrick Hörl, Managing Director of Spiegel TV Wissen and Spiegel Geschichte.
Thomas Bichlmeir, Head of Content at Ocilion, added: “With Spiegel TV Wissen and Spiegel Geschichte we are expanding our channel line-up with two high-quality documentary channels. This underlines our ambition to provide network operators with our IPTV solution and high-quality content from a single source. We are currently massively expanding the scope of available channels and will conclude further contracts in the coming weeks.”
