DeTe to open EntertainTV programming to non-customers in Oct - report

Tuesday 28 August 2018 | 13:43 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom is preparing to make programmes aired under its EntertainTV service available to non-customers beginning in October as part of a bid to build up its own streaming service and compete more directly with rivals Netflix and Amazon Prime, reported the German ad industry publication Werben & Verkaufen (WuV). The move will enable non-customers to access programming and TV series the operator owns the exclusive rights for in Germany, including programmes like "Better Things" or "The Handmaid's Tale".
