The new service means that SFR customers with OCS subscriptions can use the OCS Go app to watch content on iOS and Android tablets and smartphones on-demand.

The download functionality is a first for the French market and will enable users to access the Club Vidéo SFR VoD offering either in streaming mode on multiple screens or via download for offline viewing.

Subscribers can use their SFR box to choose Club Vidéo SFR programmes and films, add them without a surcharge to a download playlist, and view them within 48 hours.
