KPN takes aggregator role with KPN Play service

Wednesday 29 April 2015 | 18:13 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
KPN is testing an OTT app called KPN Play. The app is expected to offer customers access to a wide range of content, including a number of live channels, catch-up TV and video-on-demand. The latter will likely be provided by its partner Videoland (RTL). Furthermore, the service will be available not only on the home Wi-Fi network, but anywhere in the country and even with other broadband providers. Pricing has not yet been announced.
