netgem.tv confirms expansion of reach across 12 Ultrafast Fibre providers in the UK

05/12/19

In less than 6 months, netgem.tv has signed partnership agreements with 12 Ultrafast Fibre providers in the UK offering the best value TV & Streaming service to a reach of over a quarter of a million of the UK homes complementing their access to gigabit enabled fibre broadband.

This news of distribution acceleration comes a couple of weeks after the addition of Premier Sports channels to the netgem.tv inclusive premium content line up – confirming the appetite from viewers and operators alike for a  ‘skinny bundle’ entertainment package. netgem.tv’s library incorporates over 100 live TV channels including the nation’s favourites such as BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 as well as a complete Freeview Play catch-up including 20,000+ hours of content. In addition, netgem.tv gives access to an array of streaming services including Amazon Prime Video, hayu, Rakuten TV, YouTube, and many more.

12 Ultrafast Fibre Internet service providers (ISPs) have entered a distribution partnership with netgem.tv to bring their customers a smarter way into TV streaming across all of the UK and Ireland: WightFibre, Pure Broadband, Air Broadband, Pure Telecom, Gigaclear, Lilaconnect, VX Fibre, Cambridge Fibre, Pure Fibre, Voneus, Jersey Telecom and Origin Broadband have signed agreements with netgem.tv to bundle the TV & Streaming service with their Fibre Broadband plans starting as low as £25 a month for the package.

netgem.tv is committed to “bringing a new era of connectivity and value to all,” said Sylvain Thevenot managing director of netgem.tv. He then continued: “More video clips and TV shows are being watched via Internet streaming but the experience is increasingly disjointed. Viewers are looking for choice but also simplicity in their everyday TV & Streaming experience. They also expect good value from their Fibre provider and Entertainment service. netgem.tv is there to solve this equation for them, offering Choice, simplicity, and Value.”

As netgem.tv continues to add inclusive premium content and access to more Streaming services to their line up in coming weeks, Ultrafast Broadband ISPs will continue to grow their customer bases and increase ARPU, and these partnerships will flourish by delivering the highest quality Broadband and Internet TV services at the same time.
