With hit shows, the biggest live-streamed BVOD entertainment launch of all time with Big Brother, continued investment in more content-led growth and more 7plus exclusives slated for 2021, it is the ultimate streaming destination.
This year, 7plus is growing faster than any other BVOD service. Each week, over 200 million minutes are streamed on 7plus across thousands of unique pieces of content and 12 live channels.
