- EntertainTV to be available as an over-the-top package from fall
- Direct access to Amazon Prime Video content as of now
- Use up to four additional boxes with EntertainTV Sat
Deutsche Telekom is revolutionizing Germany’s TV market. From fall, EntertainTV will also be available as an over-the-top (OTT) package, giving TV fans the opportunity, for the first time, to enjoy Deutsche Telekom content even if they are with another internet provider. Users will then be able to access the EntertainTV OTT package via iOS and Android apps, enjoying all the usual content, including exclusive EntertainTV series. The Timeshift, Restart and Replay functions, however, will remain reserved for the classic EntertainTV package. Details regarding the offer will be released in October.
Michael Hagspihl, Head of Consumers at Telekom Deutschland, explains: “Our strategy of pooling content on one platform is paying off, as the growing customer numbers and positive response from users show. That’s why we’ve decided to open up EntertainTV to new target groups. A flexible OTT service is perfect for the trends that are driving a whole new TV generation. We can now give even more people the opportunity to access our platform and our exclusive content.”
New for IFA 2018 – Amazon Prime Video and EntertainTV Sat
Besides technological advances for EntertainTV, Deutsche Telekom is also extending the diversity of its content. In the next days, EntertainTV customers can access the many series and movies available on Amazon Prime Video. These include international hit series such as “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” and “The Grand Tour” as well as German productions such as “Deutschland 86” and “Beat”. The search function in EntertainTV makes it exceptionally easy to track down content.
EntertainTV Sat customers also have a good reason to celebrate – they can shortly add extra Media Receiver 201 units to their connection. That means they can enjoy all that EntertainTV has to offer in more than one room, with users able to access TV channels and their own recordings on the additional boxes. Up to four additional devices can be used with EntertainTV Sat.
