Launch of the TV channel Eurochannel application on Android and Google TV devices
MIAMI, August 2, 2012 - Eurochannel has expanded its reach and has entered the Internet TV space with the launch of the Eurochannel application on Google Play on Google TV, Android smartphones and tablets in USA and Canada.
Eurochannel's new Google TV optimized application is now available as a free download in Google Play. The Eurochannel app provides the programming enjoyed by millions around the globe directly into the family room via the Internet on devices such as Sony’s Internet Player and Vizio’s CoStar buddy box. The Android based application has also been optimized for Android based smartphones and tablets (including the new Google Nexus 7), so subscribers can take Eurochannel with them on the go.
The Google TV and Android optimized channel application features a fully interactive channel guide and search functionality. In addition to the live channel, subscribers will have an exclusive access to a vast library of instant streaming programs from all of Eurochannel’s programming categories, including Eurocinema, Euroseries, Euromusic, Euromagazine and Eurotravel. 120 titles are available in instant streaming for the launch. The subscription price is $7.99/month. A free 7-Day period will be offered to all new subscribers.
"We are excited about this new way to deliver our content,” said Gustavo Vainstein, President of Eurochannel. “Eurochannel will not only be available as a cable and satellite channel. This new option will definitely complement our offering, especially those people who don't have easy access to cable or satellite subscriptions or who cannot switch to operator that carries our channel. Our current TV viewers will also now be able to enjoy Eurochannel on the go."
“This is the future of television and with the Eurochannel application our subscribers will have quick and instant access to all of their favorite European movies, series, music and more,” added Alexander Behrens, COO of Eurochannel. “In the very near future we plan to add exclusive content for our application users.”
Eurochannel has partnered with IMAVEX, a leading Internet TV channel developer based in the U.S. for the Eurochannel application. “After meeting and discussing our needs with several providers it was clear that IMAVEX was the right fit for us,” said Alexander Behrens. “They are truly experts in development and online marketing.”
