The AirTies and Digiturk partnership makes DigiturkWebTV’s premium content and LigTv HD available to subscribers abroad in real time, video-on-demand (VoD), and playback up to 12 hours after initial screening.

Today we are delighted to announce the newest development in this unique partnership with AirTies because it will keep expatriate Turks living abroad more connected than ever to premium Turkish content, and it allows that content to be watched on a TV screen. Now subscribers abroad can get the full viewer experience, at whatever time fits their unique schedule.
