Video-on-demand outfit Cirkus has secured a distribution agreement in Germany with Vodafone, expanding its reach in the country.
The European crime-drama focused SVOD provider will be available to Vodafone’s TV customers from next month. The Cirkus offering will be accessible via Vodafone’s GigaTV 4K box on TV screens and via the GigaTV app on smartphones and tablets. Cirkus will be available to Vodafone customers for €3.99 a month, with a one-month free offer for new subscribers.
Cirkus entered the German and Austrian markets one year ago as one of the initial Amazon Prime channels to launch in the country
Cirkus’s offering includes UK, Scandinavian and European crime shows such as The Young Inspector Morse (Endeavour), Lewis, The Fall – Tod in Belfast, Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Prime Suspect. Other shows include Norwegian crime drama Lifjord –Der Freispruch, the UK’s No Offence – Nichts Für Ungut and Danish-Swedish-German crime drama Die Brücke – Transit in den Tod.
Cirkus founders Mark Bradford and Hugh Williams said that the launch had enabled the SVOD provider to “step it up a notch” following its launch on Amazon Prime Video Channels. They said the deal would combine “the power of Vodafone’s GigaTV technology with our high-quality scripted-series catalogue, enabling Vodafone subscribers to indulge in ‘pure crime’ whenever and wherever”.
