The deal means that from march Magine will carry the SAT.1, ProSieben, Kabel Eins, Sixx, Sat.1 Gold and ProSieben Maxx channels.
Magine has launched a trial version of its service in Germany, allowing beta users to access its service through smart TVs and other connected devices.
The company said today that the addition of the P7S1 channels means that it “will be the first OTT service offering a full TV replacement service in Germany, matching traditional TV services with an added flexibility and mobility”.
“For years, ProSiebenSat.1 has promoted the mobile distribution of TV content with its second-screen offers,” said Conrad Albert, executive board member legal, distribution and regulatory affairs at ProSiebenSat.1. “Magine is a strong partner that will further promote the mobile distribution of our TV programs.”
Mattias Hjelmstedt, CEO and co-founder of Magine, added: “We are very proud that ProSiebenSat.1 has chosen Magine as the first platform for the next generation of viewing for their channels. Magine offers broadcasters security on two fronts: firstly, they can maximize their reach by offering viewers new ways to access their content; and secondly – and even more importantly – Magine complies with existing legal requirements and procedures.”
Magine launched last year and has services in Sweden and Spain.
