Diva TV to supply movies to Philips NetTV

Switzerland-based international video-on-demand content supplier Diva TV has struck a deal with Philips NetTV, the connected TV service of the Netherlands-based consumer electronics giant.

The deal, signed at the IFA trade fair in Germany, covers the UK, Germany, Austria and Switzerland and will see Diva provide its catalogue of over 1,000 movies to NetTV-equipped TVs including the Philips 7000, 8000 and 9000 series. NetTV users will pay €2.99 for 48-hour access to each film and will be able to buy films individually, on subscription or against a pre-paid account. Subscribers will also be able to use the website to choose to view purchased movies on Android mobile phones and other devices, with Apple iPhones to follow shortly.
