Owners of Humax’s Freeview Play set top box are to receive a free software update adding global steaming service Netflix to their boxes.
A+E Networks operates a portfolio of pay-TV channels, including History, Lifetime, Crime + Investigation and H2 but last month launched a Free to Air version of Lifetime in Turkey.
UKTV is bringing its on demand and catch-up service to Freeview Play, the new internet-connected version of the UK’s biggest subscription-free TV platform.
All four channels are owned by CBS Studios International and AMC Networks International – UK and show a library of acquired content, including Judge Judy and Star Trek, alongside some original commissions and co-production.
Launched last year, Freeview Play combines broadcast channels with catch-up content from iPlayer, All4 and ITV Player to ensure TV fans never miss their favourite shows.
