INSIGHT TV UNVEILS ICELANDIC IPTV 4K UHD  DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH SIMINN

INSIGHT TV, the worlds largest producer and broadcaster of adventure travel and extreme sports genres in true, unscripted 4K UHD, has announced a major distribution deal with Siminn, one of Icelands leading telecoms companies based in Reykjavik. Siminn has launched INSIGHT TVs successful 4K UHD linear channel on its UHD IPTV service Sminn Sjnvarp, providing Icelandic subscribers with hundreds of hours of unique high-end content.

This deal further highlights INSIGHT TVs huge growth in the past 12 months and its commitment to deliver the highest quality 4K UHD content worldwide.

INSIGHT TV is making major steps in the 4K UHD world and were very happy to partner with them to provide our subscribers with a wide range of exciting UHD content, says Palmi Gudmundsson, EVP of Programming at Siminn.

Graeme Stanley, Commercial Director of INSIGHT TV, adds, Working with distribution partners like Siminn provides even greater global reach. The contract gives us the opportunity to reach more viewers in Iceland providing them with the best picture quality and with creative content based on global trending topics and social influencers.

INSIGHT TV features original programming in the form of innovative documentaries, accessible reality series, as well as high levels of interactive new formats. INSIGHT TV produces and commissions phenomenal non-scripted and long form series. The compelling content takes the viewer on a journey to explore, be educated and entertained. INSIGHT TVs range of programming demonstrates the very best of 4K UHD.
