YouView users, including TalkTalk and BT customers, can now catch-up with and watch box sets of their favourite shows from the CBS portfolio of channels – Horror Channel, CBS Reality, CBS Drama and CBS Justice – thanks to the arrival of the Horror Bites and CBS Catchup Channels UK on-demand players on the platform.
Owned by the CBS AMC UK Channels Partnership, a joint venture between AMC Networks International and CBS Studios International, the channels offer a mix of popular shows such as Judge Judy, Star Trek Enterprise and Murder by the Sea.
The players join other premium on-demand services on the YouView platform including Netflix, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub and Now TV.
Tanya Gugenheim, SVP, Business Development, AMC Networks International said: “This launch is part of our strategy to accelerate the availability of our strong and popular drama, true crime and entertainment content on new platforms, and we’re excited to be able to provide YouView’s audience with our diverse programming on-demand.”
David Faulkner, Head of Corporate and Business Development, YouView added: “It’s great to welcome on board both Horror Bites and CBS Catchup Channels UK to YouView’s on-demand services. It will give our growing base an enhanced plethora of content to choose from”.
The roll out has been supported by Simplestream, one of the UK’s leading OTT services provider.
