The monthly subscription option, which gives subscribers access to the full suite of Joyne programming, will be available from €13 per month. Joyne’s competitive proposition is also based on flexible short-term subscriptions, from one month, for Dutch viewers with second homes and mobile homes as well as special offers for public spaces in camping sites and bars.

Hans Brunas, CEO of Joyne, said, The new Joyne brand stands for connection and the pleasure afforded by quality entertainment. Our new proposition will be distinctive for TV quality, broad reception across Europe and flexibility in subscriptions. With these criteria at the centre of our ambition it is a logical choice to select Eutelsat as our satellite platform and we look forward to a long cooperation.”

Michel Azibert, Chief Commercial and Development Officer of Eutelsat, added: “This new contract with Joyne on EUTELSAT 9B reflects the efficiency of satellites for targeting language communities and for extending access to premium pay-TV content for the many viewers who want short-term seasonal solutions. It marks the first step in a partnership with a new European player that places exceptional flexibility at its core.”
