Euronews, which currently reaches 415 million households in 156 countries, has now launched on live TV streaming service, TVPlayer.
The launch of Euronews on TVPlayer will bring around-the-clock coverage of news, business and current affair stories, as well as lifestyle features, to a wider audience in the UK across multiple devices.
TVPlayer is an OTT platform launched in December 2013 by Simplestream, and has proven itself to be one of the fastest growing live TV platforms in the UK, the company claims. TVPlayer’s 45-plus channels can be watched via tvplayer.com, App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon App Store, and is soon to launch via channel 241 on Freeview in the UK.
ʺI am delighted with this agreement between Euronews and TVPlayer, enabling us to share our channel to the UK’s fastest growing TV platform,” said Arnaud Verlhac, director of worldwide distribution. “Euronews integrates perfectly into TVPlayer’s offering. The agreement also brings Euronews into a large audience, strengthening its presence in the UK.”
Lewis Arthur, platform manager of TVPlayer added: ʺThe launch of Euronews on TVPlayer is an exciting addition to our platform. In a fast-pace digital age, consumers expect to be kept up-to-date on world news and current affairs, which they seek out online and using their mobile phone. We are pleased that we have been working with Euronews to bring their 24-hour world news coverage to a captive audience in the UK.”
