Food Network and Travel Channel added to TVPlayer

TVPlayer and Scripps Networks have announced a new licensing deal, which will see Scripps Network's flagship UK networks Travel Channel and Food Network become available on the TVPlayer service from today.

The deal, which includes timeshift +1 channels, takes TVPlayer's channel offering to over 40 channels. TVPlayer can be accessed online at or via its app, available to mobile and tablet users on Android, iOS and Kindle Fire.

Adam Smith, founder and CEO of TVPlayer's owner Simplestream said: "We are delighted to welcome Food Network and Travel Channel to TVPlayer, offering our users a great selection of premium programming. The addition of Scripps channels form the start of a series of updates over the summer period, which will add further channels and functionality to TVPlayer, culminating with the launch of our PVR service later in the year.

"We think the TVPlayer app offers a welcomed alternative to tech-hungry audiences, who are looking to watch TV on their mobile and tablet devices whilst they are out and about as well as at home."

Kate Bradshaw from Scripps Networks commented that the move will enhance "Scripps' cross-platform offering."
