Unterföhring/Luxembourg, February 14, 2018 – ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE and the platform operator M7 have concluded a long-term distribution agreement. ProSiebenSat.1 Group’s free TV and pay TV channels will therefore be available on the new satellite platform Diveo right from the start.
The agreement allows customers of the new direct-to-home platform Diveo to receive the free TV channels ProSieben, Sat.1, kabel eins, sixx, SAT.1 Gold and ProSieben MAXX in HD quality via satellite. The three pay TV channels ProSieben FUN HD, SAT.1 emotions and kabel eins CLASSICS are also distributed via Diveo.
In addition, the agreement includes innovative services such as instant restart and the ability to record shows in the cloud (NPVR). Moreover, customers will also be able to watch ProSiebenSat.1 Group content on demand in the future. This is made possible by M7’s new, hybrid satellite- and IP-based consumer offering.
Christof Wahl, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer and COO of ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE: “For the first time, our partner M7’s new consumer offering provides the opportunity to use our HD stations, pay TV offerings and extensive hybrid services such as catch-up offerings via satellite from a single source. We are thus expanding our viewers’ opportunities to receive our content via an additional distribution channel.”
Oliver Rockstein, who is responsible for Diveo as Executive Vice President at M7 Group, adds: “Diveo’s vision is to take our customers with us into the future of the TV experience. Diveo makes TV content in excellent picture quality easy and convenient to access. Customers benefit from the freedom of deciding for themselves when, where and how to watch TV content. We want to provide every possible means for ensuring that TV experiences cannot be missed. We are delighted that ProSiebenSat.1 Group’s content will be there right from the start.”
