Telenet to stop customers fast-forwarding through ads on catch-up, recordings

Tuesday 10 August 2021 | 13:51 CET | News
Belgian operator Telenet announced a change to its catch-up TV service, so customers can no longer fast forward through all the ads. For programmes recorded from the commercial VTM channels, owned by DPG Media, and the Play channels owned by Telenet subsidiary SBS, customers also will see a minute of ads at the beginning of the recording that they cannot skip.
