AB Group’s Jook SVoD service launches on Orange

AB Group’s Jook Video subscription video-on-demand service has launched on Orange’s TV service in France. 

Orange TV customers equipped with a Livebox Play set-top can access Jook Video as part of the Pass Video offering on the platform, which also includes Filmo TV, Canalplay and Pass M6.

Jook Video claims to offer about 10,000 titles, with movies including Spiderman, The Matrix, Hancock, Men in black, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill 1 and 2, series including The Big Bang Theory, Vampire Diaries, Gossip girl and Damages.

Orange is offering Jook Video for €1 a month for the first two months to those who sign up for a subscription before July 2, or for €7.99 a month without a commitment.

AB Group launched the SVoD service in March after several delays, initially available on PC and Mac computers, tablets and smartphones. AB Group CEO Jean-Michel Fava had earlier set a target of reaching 300,000 subscribers for the service, without specifying a date.
