It offers its customers a leapfrog entertainment platform providing linear and video-on-demand content anytime on the TV set and on mobile devices in the household in best quality. In conjunction with a top cable receiver and an intuitive user interface setting new benchmarks, advanceTV combines linear television, video content from the Internet, personal recordings, the maxdome flat-rate and Hollywood blockbusters on-demand with further smart TV apps on a unique platform.

From 16 January 2017, all new Premium TV customers of Tele Columbus can enjoy the most popular free-TV and pay-TV channels, the latest Hollywood blockbusters on-demand from the advanceTV video library as well as their favourite series and movies with the bundle product HD maxdome plus or the additional subscription option maxdome flat. The films in the advanceTV movie library are provided almost at the same time as their DVD/Blu-ray release.

The advanceTV platform sets another milestone in the transition of Tele Columbus from a pure cable player to a fully integrated multimedia operator as part of its current strategy.
