RTL Deutschland has secured rights to content from Viacom’s Awesomeness TV digital outfit for its subscription video-on-demand service TV Now.
Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland will offer a selection of Awesomeness programming on the SVOD offering. The new TV Now Premium package offers a range of exclusive programming, live content and the most popular German and international series.
Moritz Pohl, Head of VoD content at Mediengruppe RTL, said: “With TV Now we recently launched a new full-featured and stand-alone streaming service for the mass market to entertain, inform and move people all over Germany. Thanks to the partnership with Awesomeness and VIMN, we can supplement our exclusive content with high-quality programs for the increasingly important young audience.”
The deal follows the naming of Viacom International Studios (VIS) as the international distributor for a large portfolio of key premium series and films within the Awesomeness catalogue.
VIS’s International Content Sales team will be responsible for representing 18 series and 8 films within the Awesomeness portfolio for third party distribution internationally
Viacom acquired Awesomeness last year.
