Alternatively, Philips Smart TV viewers subscribing to the MYTF1 MAX service will have access to five live TV channels including: TF1, TMC, TFX, TF1 Séries Films and LCI, with 48-hour previews of current and future daily series, plus the option of a 30-day catch-up facility. All content is provided commercial-free and in HD quality for a monthly fee of €4.99.

And from September 8, MYTF1 MAX subscribers will be able to enjoy live coverage of the Rugby World Cup’s best matches, as well as personnalized video summaries of matches with the Top Chrono feature.

MYTF1 will be one of the first Apps to benefit from an improved and faster version of the in-house developed Philips Smart TV platform featuring a new and more attractive interface giving instant access to the best content, via key media partners, on the personalised home page.

The improved Smart TV platform already includes hundreds of free linear channels and will add more leading apps and casting technology during 2023.
