Sky has introduced its new OTT streaming platform in Spain, a market where it does not offer traditional pay TV, as in other European countries. Called ‘Sky’, the service costs €10 a month (USD 12) and includes linear channels and VOD content.
According to El País newspaper, the company expects to reach one million customers in the country. Sky’s CFO Andrew Griffith, said the company decided to launch the platform in Spain because “there are 12 million households that do not have to pay TV channels.”
The platform includes 12 of the most popular pay TV channels in Spain: Calle 13, Comedy Central, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Fox, Fox Life, Historia, National Geographic, Nickelodeon, Syfy, TCM and TNT. Sky’s executives confirmed that the company plans to produce Spanish series in the future.
The service is available through apps for iOS and Android, its website, and also offers a TV Box for € 25 (USD 30), powered by Roku, to watch the contents on the TV set.
