W4free and its Watch4 sister service are advertiser-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) portals for free use. In addition to a selection of arthouse and independent film and TV series, they offer viewers documentaries across and sports broadcasts - as well as a variety of videos from the lifestyle, comedy and automotive sectors.

Watch4 was launched in 2018 and is available in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland on mobile devices and via Apple TV, Swisscom TV Box and Sky Ticket. W4free and Watch4 are owned by Zug Switzerland’s Video Solutions. W4free launched in the UK 2019 with Sky Media selling advertising.

W4Free joins Premier Sports, LaLigaTV and 20 other linear channels added to the Netgem TV service in 2020.

“The W4Free service arrives on Netgem TV at just the right time adding a fantastic collection of movies and series for our customers at no extra cost,” commented Netgem chief commercial and customer officer Sylvain Thevenot. “We are focused on making our customers’ lives easier by giving them more choice and easy access to quality content on a service that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. By working with content partners like W4Free we are able to significantly increase the value of our TV service and the streaming proposition for growing Altnets in the UK and Ireland.”

“Adding Netgem TV as a distribution partner is an important development in the evolution of w4free.com. It will certainly expand our footprint in Britain,” noted W4free chairman Chris Sharp. “The key to our growth will be to maximise our consumer visibility making it even easier for customers to see our curated programme service. Being available on a platform like Netgem TV that is across linear and mobile platforms is a tremendous step forward.”
