Voneus, the superfast wireless broadband provider for rural communities, today announced that its customers can now enjoy a smarter, more varied TV viewing experience alongside its broadband plans. Voneus has teamed up with netgem.tv, the award-winning TV provider, so that its residential customers can access the very best of free and paid TV, with a wide range of affordable viewing choices available.
The netgem.tv bundle provides Voneus customers with access to over 120 free channels, including 15 in HD, which they can also stream on any of their devices, using Voneus’s Superfast broadband services. They can also use netgem.tv to watch on-demand content from the likes of BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and YouTube, as well as its own range of exclusive channels including Premier Sports.
The tie up also gives Voneus customers access to an extensive and flexible range of add-ons, including streaming apps such as Amazon Prime and hayu, Hopster for kids, Deezer for music, and Rakuten, which showcases the latest films. As a special offer, a 12-month subscription to Amazon Prime is included at no extra cost when Voneus customers sign up before the end of February. Designed to be easy to navigate, the netgem.tv service is even Alexa-enabled, so viewers can change channels and search for programmes just by using their voice.
“This partnership means we at Voneus can bring our customers a fantastic range of TV options and all at a fraction of the price of typical pay TV options,” said Steve Leighton, CEO at Voneus.
“For too long, people living in remote areas of the country have had their TV viewing options restricted by their location. Now we’ve teamed up with netgem.tv, they can watch what they want, when they want, all on their device of choice.”
“With streaming services now more popular than ever, TV and broadband have become inextricably linked,” said Sylvain Thevenot, managing director, netgem.tv. “Voneus’s reputation for providing superfast broadband to rural areas makes them an ideal partner for us, and means even more communities can enjoy our exciting range of content.”
