Netgem.tv reports this week that it has expanded its reach across 12 Ultrafast Fibre providers in the UK. According to the company, this means its TV & Streaming service is now available to more than a quarter of a million of the UK homes – complementing their access to gigabit-enabled fibre broadband.

This distribution acceleration comes a couple of weeks after the addition of Premier Sports channels to the netgem.tv premium content line up, which management says “confirms the appetite from viewers and operators for a skinny bundle entertainment package”. At time of writing, netgem.tv’s library incorporates 100 live TV channels including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5 as well as a Freeview Play catch-up including 20,000+ hours of content. In addition, netgem.tv gives access to streaming services including Amazon Prime Video, hayu, Rakuten TV and YouTube

Sylvain Thevenot managing director of netgem.tv, said: “More video clips and TV shows are being watched via Internet streaming but the experience is increasingly disjointed. Viewers are looking for choice but also simplicity in their everyday TV & Streaming experience. They also expect good value from their fibre provider and entertainment service. Netgem.tv is there to solve this equation for them.”
