Rlaxx TV expands Into South Africa and Poland
The free ad-based video-on-demand (AVoD) service rlaxx TV, which is based in Germany, has further expanded its global presence with the launch in South Africa and Poland. These new markets join the existing availability in countries such as Germany, Spain and the UK – making rlaxx TV now available in two entirely new territories: Eastern Europe and Africa.
Rlaxx TV features both linear as well as video-on-demand (VoD) catalogs, thereby combining the best of both viewing options: high-quality content, along with the enhanced feature to stop, fast-forward or rewind the selected program at any time. Additionally, users can enjoy the content of the premium niche channels whenever they want in rlaxx TV’s video-ondemand library.
Rlaxx TV relies on its global network of content providers with custom-fit content across many categories – from fringe sports to international feature films. Viewers in the newly added countries will therefore be able to choose from a wide range of international channels such as Comedy Dynamics, Thrill One and Gusto TV as well as some channels, that are more specific to certain regions. In South Africa for example, viewers will also have access to channels like TidPix, Nollywood Capital TV and Afroland TV, which focus on local African content.
“With the addition of South Africa and Poland, rlaxx TV has also become available in two new markets - Africa and Eastern Europe - for the first time. We are very proud of these new launches and happy to share our growing and diverse content portfolio with our viewers,” says Ronny Lutzi, CEO of rlaxx TV.
The rlaxx TV app is now available in 26 countries as a Beta version on the web as well as on iOS, Android and an array of smart TV brands and media streamers such as Samsung, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, Blaupunkt, Grundig, Hisense, Hitachi, JVC, LG, Medion, Metz, Panasonic, Sharp, Telefunken, Toshiba, Vestel and Xbox.
