ProSieben shuts int’l OTT service

German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 has shut down the global OTT service that accompanies its international TV channel ProSiebenSat.1 Welt.

The venture, which caters for German speakers worldwide, will however remain as a pay TV service in the US and Canada. The company said it believes more opportunities lie in the pay TV markets there.

The subscription service launched in 17 territories in August 2014, including France, the UK, Ireland, Mexico, Brazil and South Africa.

The news comes just days after rival German broadcaster RTL announced it was launching its international pay TV channel for viewers outside German-speaking countries this month.
