The Android-based platform made its debut in March. Canal Digital will add Netflix to its services putting the streaming media service alongside Google-originated content.
“We have promised our customers to gather the best and most relevant content in our offering. By adding Netflix to our other content, we are giving our customers access to even more series and films, in addition to all our other content”, says Tone Krohn Clausen, Chief Products & Digital Officer, Canal Digital.
The launch of Netflix on OnePlace is to be backed by a major advertising campaign.
“We are thrilled to partner with Canal Digital and give their customers a seamless access to their favorite Netflix shows, movies, documentaries, stand-ups kids programming and more,” says Rene Rummel-Mergeryan, Director of Business Development for Netflix EMEA. “Since 4K and HDR are fully supported through Canal Digital, this means our award-winning content can be enjoyed in the best picture quality.”
Startover capability has recently been added to the OnePlace platform and the Netflix launch will be accompanied by an improvement in the Search functionality.
Canal Digital offers both linear TV and holds approximately 30 000 titles in its streaming service, the largest in Norway as measured by the number of titles.
