GOVINET Germany officially went online in December this year with the video-on-demand platform bumerangTV. The project, which started in the second quarter of 2017, will be fully launched in 2019 in the German-speaking GSA territory. The A-VoD platform can be accessed via the website www.bumerangtv.com, found as an app for tablets, smartphones and as a smartTV app for free. There is also a free and optional membership offered.
The video platform is to offer series from different countries in their original language as well as content dubbed in German. At this, bumerangTV consciously specializes in non-hollywood content that has achieved great success in their country of origin. The target group here is, on the one hand, people with different background in the GSA area, who consume content in their native language. On the other hand, bumerangTV is also addressing German-speaking people by offering German dubbed content of a selection from its original-language-pool.
Currently bumerangTV announces a series called ’’Das Osmanische Imperium: HAREM- Der Weg zur Macht.’’ (Magnificent Century) on its website. This series is dubbed in German for the first time worldwide and will be exclusively available on bumerangTV.
The first season of this series will appear in the first quarter of 2019 on bumerangTV.com and will break the first ground for dubbed content on the platform.
