BBC Studios-Branded Space on Magio TV & Magenta TV


BBC Studios has launched a branded VOD space within Slovak Telekom and T-Mobile Czech’s streaming services Magio TV and Magenta TV to offer content from BBC First and BBC Earth.

BBC First content that is now available to Slovak Telekom and T-Mobile Czech subscribers includes The Pursuit of Love, starring Lily James, Andrew Scott and Dominic West, and Sanditon, starring Theo James (The White Lotus). Other available titles include Ghosts, Guilt, Shakespeare & Hathaway, Time and The North Water. This marks the debut of the BBC First brand in the Slovak and Czech markets.

In addition to the existing BBC Earth linear channel, Slovak and Czech viewers now have exclusive access to an even broader range of factual content, including Life Below Zero, Where the Wild Men Are and Attenborough’s Wonder of Song.

All of the BBC Studios content available on Magio TV and Magenta TV is available in the original English version with Czech subtitles.

Zbigniew Pruski, commercial director for the CEE at BBC Studios said: “Building our on-demand offer in cooperation with our affiliate partners is key to our strategy in the CEE region. While we keep building a strong linear channel business here, we are also keen to address the growing appetite for our digital proposition. I’m glad Magio TV and Magenta TV subscribers who already have access to BBC Earth linear channel will now get a chance to see some of their favorite factual programming whenever they desire but also enjoy our top talent and award-winning drama titles.”

Marcel Satanek, from Slovak Telekom, added: “We want to win the hearts of our customers and positively surprise them with the news. At the same time, we want to have the best content in our portfolio. Therefore, we decided to focus on what our viewers want, which is quality and the best content. BBC Studios is our long-term partner, and together we bring access to top-notch British drama and documentaries without commercials directly from Magio TV.”
