BBC Worldwide content launches onto NZ’s Telecom Mobile TV

BBC Worldwide Australia has made its long-form content available on mobile platforms for the first time in New Zealand after the conclusion of a deal with Telecom for its Mobile TV service.

Subscribers can now stream episodes of Top Gear, Doctor Who, Little Britain, The Office and Extras through the XT Network’s mobile site – TWorld.

The deal includes a significant amount of content, with hit comedies such as The Catherine Tate Show and cult classic The Mighty Boosh slated for future launch.

“This deal brings quality drama, comedy and entertainment programming direct to mobile,” said Louisa Bayles, BBC Worldwide Australia’s Digital Sales Manager.

“Streaming through Telecom’s Mobile TV service means that fans of Doctor Who and Top Gear can now enjoy them whenever they want, but this is also a fantastic opportunity to reach out to new audiences.”

Making content available on digital platforms is a core part in BBC Worldwide’s objective of securing the broadest possible distribution strategy for its huge range of television content.
