Turner Broadcasting UK’s new general entertainment channel truTV launches today on UK OTT platform TVPlayer.
TruTV, a 24-hour channel, provides a destination for UK viewers to enjoy both original and unscripted programming. The launch of truTV in the UK follows the channel’s success in the US where it is watched in 93 million homes.
Under the agreement, TVPlayer has licensed multi-platform live streaming rights, together with 7 day catchup across truTV and truTV+1. The programming will be viewable on WiFI, 3G and 4G allowing consumers to access truTV’s programming from anywhere in the UK. The live streams will be available from 15th January 2015, with catchup following later in Q.1 this year.
TVPlayer live streams over 50 popular free-to-air channels across a wide range of devices including PCs, mobiles, tablets and smart TVs.
