Vodafone Romania launches the video and music streaming service 4GTV+ and a new partnership for the Romanian market with Netflix, the world's leading internet television network. 4GTV+ offers access to a broad series of TV channels, covering all types of content from news to entertainment, both local and international. The service also includes 36 million songs provided by Zonga and successful productions provided by partners such as Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney Channel On Demand. Vodafone Romania also announces a partnership with Netflix which will include an exclusive special offer for Vodafone customers.
4GTV+ users can watch live TV, but also pause some of the live shows and play them later from that same moment on or rewind to the beginning, with the “Restart and rewind” feature. Also, by using the “Catch-up” feature, customers can watch a selection of the shows that they missed while they were broadcasted live, for the following 72 hours. In addition, users benefit from multiscreen experience, as they can send some of the 4GTV+ content on TV screens and, in parallel, continue to use their phone for calls or any other actions without interrupting the video viewing. Customers can also benefit from session continuity, an option which allows them to pause viewing of some of the content and resume at any time from the exact moment of the pause.
“After launching Supernet 4G+, the network that enables future developments and innovation in customer experience, we are announcing today 4GTV+ service, which will allow our customers to consume personalized content anytime, anywhere. 4GTV+ provides our users with access to the most relevant local and global content in an innovative and intuitive way”, Ravinder Takkar, President and CEO of Vodafone Romania, stated.
