Cisco has collaborated with Sky to launch OnPrime TV, a new app-based streaming service providing foreign language film, TV and news channels.
Powered by the Cisco Infinite Video platform, OnPrime TV includes Sky South Asian, Sky Arabic and Sky Russian channel packs.
The app can be downloaded via the app store on Apple TV4, or by searching for OnPrime TV on Apple TV3. All channel packs offer a 30-day free trial, and range in price from £8.99 to £17.99 a month.
Cisco plans to expand the service to more devices and additional European countries during 2017.
“OnPrime TV fills the gap in the market for high-quality foreign entertainment available to non-European expatriate communities living in Europe,” said Rajeev Raman, vice president, strategy and product management, SP applications and platforms, Cisco.
Emma Lloyd, group director of business development and strategic partnerships, Sky, added: “Sky has worked closely with Cisco for years, and we’re pleased to be partnering with them on this innovative new service.”
“Cisco’s technological expertise and Encompass’ long-standing history of delivering reliable broadcast solutions, combined with Sky’s strong track record on curating content and streaming to millions of customers, has created an exciting new service.”
