Royal Caribbean has agreed to extend its satellite TV channel contract with Oceans TV for two of its cruise ships.
The first agreement extends the service for Serenade of the Seas while it cruises in Europe and the Middle East in Winter and Spring 2013. This will provide channels such as BBC World News, BBC Entertainment and CNBC Europe for English speaking passengers. Passengers from Italy can watch Rai News, Rai 1 and Mediaset Italia; TF1 and AB1 are available for French passengers while TVE Internacional and RTL Schweiz can be viewed by Spanish and German speakers respectively.
The second agreement Royal Caribbean extended its satellite TV channels for Splendour of the Seas. As Splendour cruises the waters of South America, it will provide Brazil's largest commercial television network which is watched by an estimated 120 million people daily across Latin America.
As well as satellite TV channels, Oceans TV supplies cruise lines with live events, international movies, promotional videos, safety films and portable entertainment systems such as the iPad and Sony PSP.
