The acquisition will see the Alchemie catalogue, which includes 40,000 hours of content across the genres of current affairs, crime, nature, history and children’s content, added to the streaming platform.

TV Player has a viewer base of 450,000 people and an estimated four million app downloads.

Nicolas d’Hueppe, CEO of Alchimie, said: “TVPlayer gives us the opportunity to accelerate our plans for the launch of Alchimie UK, the visibility to support negotiations with UK rights owners, as well as access to audience data.

“There are tremendous synergies to support the acquisition; our content portfolio enables us to restructure the channel offering behind the paywall, additionally our strong relationships with telecoms companies will introduce a potential new market to TVPlayer.”

Alchimie’s acquisition of TVPlayer marks the company’s move into the UK market, currently Europe’s leading SVoD market, and builds on its recent expansion into Spain, Austria, France, Belgium, Germany and Australia.
