A1 Telekom Austria Group has announced a contract renewal and the expansion of its partnership with MEGA MAX MEDIA. A1 Group will continue to provide the technical and content distribution of the toddler‘s channel ducktv and will be able to target both private households and PAY TV operators, its own PAY TV platform and third-party PAY TV operators in whole CEE using Eutelsat 16 as contribution platform. As of now, ducktv is available to all five A1’s subsidiaries with A1 Slovenia being the new addition to the list.

The partnership between A1 Telekom Austria Group & MEGA MAX MEDIA started in 2015 with the launch of ducktv at A1 Telekom Austria Group’s subsidiaries in Bulgaria, Croatia, North Macedonia and of course Austria itself. In June this year, ducktv expanded its footprint to Slovenia and is also now available to the PAY TV subscribers of A1 Slovenia.

Elena Petrova, Head of A1 Wholesale Broadcasting, comments on the partnership: “It is my pleasure to continue our collaboration with ducktv on Eutelsat 16 for another 3 years. We proved that we deliver excellent technical services, but ducktv also proved to be an excellent partner providing exclusive and irreplaceable kids content. A1 Telekom Austria Group’s “direct2home” services deliver excellent content to our subscribers in CEE, but can also provide the channel via simulcrypting to other DTH operators on Eutelsat 16A, to numerous cable and IPTV players via our contribution services. Our team is proud and excited to build long-term partners!”

“We are very pleased to continue our successful cooperation with A1 Telekom Austria Group and are excited to introduce our premium kids content also to their PAY TV subscribers in Slovenia. ducktv is a leading toddler’s channel offering expertly curated content that can be enjoyed by families, wanting to spend quality time together!” says Iza Piotrowska, Director of Affiliate Sales in MEGA MAX MEDIA.
