SES’s German HD media platform subscribers will now be able to access their favourite channels on their mobile devices with the launch of a new streaming app, HD+ ToGo.
As an extension of SES’s high-definition satellite television HD+ service, the mobile service will give users full streaming access to over 50 HD channels in the palm of their hands. It will be available on 29 September.
HD+ ToGo will mirror the popular functions of the linear TV platform, such as access to media libraries and restart service. HD+ ToGo also includes a smart search function for content, which allows users to refine search results with filters, place the content found on a watch list and set automatic reminders.
“With HD+ ToGo, customers are basically carrying an HD TV in their pocket and can enjoy the benefits of HD+ everywhere. HD+ ToGo brings access to content from 50+ HD channels and was designed to be intuitive and with a user-friendly interface for the best viewing experience. At home or on the go, HD+ ToGo offers a great TV experience that can now also be enjoyed on mobile devices,” said Andreas Müller-Vondey, head of sales and marketing at HD+.
The new streaming service will be available first to HD+ subscribers as an additional option. HD+ subscribers will be able to enjoy a 30-day free trial; after that, they will pay 5 euros per month in addition to their basic subscription price and can terminate their subscriptions monthly. HD+ ToGo will allow HD+ subscribers to stream up to five devices with the ability for two viewers to stream simultaneously.
