Eurochannel launches on Android, Google TV devices


Eurochannel has expanded its reach, entering the Internet TV space with the launch of the Eurochannel app on the Play Store for Google TV, Android smartphones and tablets in USA and Canada.

Eurochannel’s new Google TV optimized app is now available as a free download in the Google Play Store. The Eurochannel app provides the programming enjoyed by millions around the globe directly into the family room via the Internet on devices such as Sony’s Internet Player and Vizio’s CoStar buddy box. The Android-based app has also been optimized for Android based smartphones and tablets (including the new Google Nexus 7), so subscribers can take Eurochannel with them on the go.

The Google TV and Android optimized channel application features a fully interactive channel guide and search functionality. In addition to the live channel, subscribers will have an exclusive access to a vast library of instant streaming programs from all of Eurochannel’s programming categories, including Eurocinema, Euroseries, Euromusic, Euromagazine and Eurotravel. 120 titles are available in instant streaming for the launch. The subscription price is $7.99/month. A free 7-Day period will be offered to all new subscribers.

“We are excited about this new way to deliver our content,” said Gustavo Vainstein, President of Eurochannel. “Eurochannel will not only be available as a cable and satellite channel. This new option will definitely complement our offering, especially those people who don’t have easy access to cable or satellite subscriptions or who cannot switch to operator that carries our channel. Our current TV viewers will also now be able to enjoy Eurochannel on the go.”

Eurochannel offers European content such as movies, series, music and documentaries. Targeted to all family members, this general entertainment channel is present on cable and satellite systems in 30 countries worldwide. In the USA, Eurochannel is available on DISH Network, in Basic International, French Bouquet and Polish Bouquet.
