Swiss Streaming Service Zattoo to Carry ProSiebenSat.1 Channels in Germany

ProSieben's free-to-air networks will go out online and via mobile on Zattoo in Germany.

German broadcast giant ProSiebenSat.1 has signed a deal with Zattoo to have its free-to-air networks, including flagships ProSieben and Sat.1, carried over the Swiss streaming service in the German market.

Zattoo's service lets viewers watch live TV on their phones or tablets as well as on their computers over WiFi. Zattoo also has an app for Internet-connected televisions.

The deal, announced Friday, will see ProSieben license its German channels ProSieben, Sat.1, kabel eins, sixx, Gold and ProSieben MAXX to Zattoo in Germany. The Swiss group already offers some 70 channels to stream for German viewers and boasts around 700,000 users in the territory. In Switzerland, Zattoo users can stream more than 200 television channels via the service.
