Internet television provider FilmOn.com has agreed a deal with Spanish state broadcaster TVE to stream an international version of the channel on a global basis.
The arrangement will see FilmOn become the first ever IPTV provider to enter into an agreement with TVE to stream the broadcaster’s content straight to PCs and smartphones on a revenue share basis.
It will enable FilmOn users around the world to access premium Spanish content regardless of which territory they are in at the time. TVE is the first European state broadcaster to embrace the world of digital in this way via FilmOn, which already boasts 500 other channels that are mostly under licence from private broadcasters.
It is unknown if this will be the actual TVE La1 or La2 channel, or simply the TVE International channel that is already available for free on many satellites.
