European streaming firm Netgem is making its service free to customers for the next three months, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Netgem free during COVID19
From this week, customers from Netgem’s network of ultrafast and rural broadband providers, can benefit from a three-month, totally free, subscription to Netgem TV.
Additionally, customers who upgrade to Fibre and TV, will be able to benefit from Amazon Prime services for a year.
Across the UK and Ireland, it is expected that around 250,000 households can benefit from the offer.
The idea is to offer content that is appealing for every member of the family; at a time when subscribers will want to consume entertainment amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
From the great programmes across all genres offered by the public broadcasters (BBC, iPlayer, ITV hub, All4, My5 and UKTV Play), to the abundance of extra kids programs available on the service including YouTube Kids and Hopster, Netgem TV claims to offer an attractive package for all.
Working with partners
“We are very excited to be in the position to announce this offer and work closely with our broadband partners to offer customers an opportunity to access the widest possible range of content when they will most be needing it”, said Sylvain Thevenot, Managing Director of Netgem TV.
Steve Leighton, CEO of Voneus, has added: “In the world we live in, access to broadband is becoming increasingly important. It is the local ISPs that are helping those in less communicated areas secure this access.
“We are particularly thrilled about the opportunity to launch this new offer along with Netgem TV. It is a way of reinforcing our commitment with customers in providing strong TV packages with wider content available; especially in times like these when more time is being spent at home.”
The offer is available immediately through a customer’s internet service provider; and for Netgem TV customers that have purchased the box via Amazon in the past 30-days.
