Customers of German cable operator NetCologne and NetAachen will be given the chance to view live TV on their laptops, tablets, smartphones and PC for free as of 1 October. Smartphones and tablets will have to make use of an app, while a web browser will suffice for laptops and PCs, but customers should be able to receive about 40 TV channels live, distributed through their local Wi-Fi network.
In more good news for NetCologne and NetAachen cusomters, many of these channels will be in HD.
NetCologne and NetAachen want to add this original TV service – known as “Web’n’App TV” – to further packages in the near future, but for now it will be available to new subscribers of the tariff Doppel-Flat Premium 100.000 kbit/s without additional fee. Existing customers can get hold of the service when upgrading to the tariff or signing a new two-year contract for it.
