Our 'freemium' model combines the best TV content with premium VoD content, which is an absolutely unique selling point in the German market. I am proud of what our team has achieved in just a few months and looking forward to everything else to come."
Katja Hofem, CCMO and Managing Director Joyn: "Joyn PLUS+ enables us to show users new facets of our offering and an even greater variety of content. Here we combine our local premium originals with various, exclusive, international content, which is an absolute added value for our users. We already have twelve originals in the pipeline for 2020 and want to set new impulses on a regular basis. Of course, there are still exciting originals to be seen in the Joyn basic offering as well."
