NetRange, the global leader for white label Smart TV portals, and FUNKE Digital TV Guide, provider of solutions for the supply of editorial content as well as for target-oriented, personalized advertising, are joining forces.

Thanks to the cooperation, Smart TV users in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Liechtenstein will have access to the “Themenkanäle von watchmi“ (“watchmi theme channels”) on devices that carry the NetRange portal, among them brands like Loewe, Sharp, TCL, Skyworth or Changhong.

“Themenkanäle von watchmi“ provides content of noted editorial partners such as EuroNews, Reuters, dpa, kicker.de, BILD, joiz, Welt der Wunder, Stiftung Warentest, AMPYA and others, thus allowing access to videos covering the domains News, Sports, Entertainment, Technology and Science. Already today, more than 50 channels from more than 20 editorial partners are available in 11 categories, the range being constantly increased and adjusted.

“I’m looking forward to cooperating with FUNKE Digital TV Guide“, said Jan Wendt, Managing Director of NetRange. “Together, we will enable Smart TV users to create their own playlists from a huge choice of high-quality content.“

“Thanks to the cooperation with NetRange, the thematic channels of watchmi are now available on devices of Loewe, Sharp, Skyworth and other brands. We are happy to be able to provide the premium content of our editorial partners to users of those brands”, said Stephan Zech, CEO of FUNKE Digital TV Guide GmbH.
