Deutsche Telekom and Video Solutions AG have reached a partnership agreement which will see the German telco distribute wedo movies – a FAST channel operated by Video Solutions – as part of its TV offering, MagentaTV. The move represents the expansion of Video Solutions’ ad-supported streaming service wedotv, into linear TV. MagentaTV’s four million customers will be able to watch the channel on the EPG programme slot 79.
Video Solutions recently brought its free ad-supported streaming services in the UK (W4Free) and in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria (Watch4) under a single brand: wedotv. The unified streaming service offers feature films and series (including lifestyle, comedy, and automotive programmes), as well as documentaries and live sports.
Philipp Rotermund, Founder and CEO of Video Solutions AG, said: “We are pleased about the long-term cooperation with Deutsche Telekom, through which we can significantly expand the reach of wedotv.
“With our strategic decision to distribute the FAST channel wedo movies on MagentaTV in the TV channel offering, we guarantee our attractive feature film channel and its advertising partners high findability and visibility – and are thus breaking a new path in the streaming industry. Partnerships with other TV platforms and network operators are in preparation.”
wedotv is available as an app on most Smart TVs, streaming devices and platforms, including: Android, iOS, Samsung, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku, as well as directly on the web at www.wedotv.com. In addition to MagentaTV, wedo movies is offered on Samsung TV Plus, waipu.tv, rlaxx TV, LG Channels, Philips, Rakuten TV, Xiaomi, Netgem and TCL.
