Consumers in the UK, Italy and Germany can now access popular foreign language film, television and news channels in one place via OnPrime TV, a new app-based OTT streaming service developed by Cisco in collaboration with European pay-TV provider Sky. The service works on Apple TV for now. 

The service which was launched in the U.K. end of last year targeting migrant group, offers three ‘Sky packs’ aimed at Russia, Arabic and South Asian audiences respectively. Cisco said it plans to expand the service to more devices and additional European countries during 2017.

Powered by the Cisco Infinite Video Platform, OnPrime TV offers viewers access to high-quality foreign language linear content. The OnPrime TV app can be downloaded via the app store on Apple TV4, or by searching for OnPrime TV on Apple TV3. All channel packs offer a 30-day free trial, and range in price from £8.99 to £17.99 a month.
