The online aggregator will bring together content from ProSiebenSat.1's family of German networks and Discovery's free-to-air channels DMAX and TLC.

Discovery Communications and German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 have joined forces to launch a premium streaming service for the German market.

The service, unveiled at MIPCOM on Monday, will aggregate content from ProSieben's bouquet of German networks — including Pro7, Sat.1, Kabel Eins, Sixx, Maxx, Sat.1 Gold and Kabel Eins Doku with Discovery’s free-to- air channels DMAX and TLC in Germany.

The free, ad-supported service, which will be available on ProSiebenSat.1's digital platform and app 7TV, is set up to allow other partners to join and to carry third-party content.

7TV said it is also planning to launch a Eurosport Zone on its app, where viewers can watch selected sports highlights and clips from Discovery's pan-European sports network.
