Stingray announced that it has acquired the Festival 4K television channel, which will become the first international 4K Ultra HD channel with worldwide availability.

Its programming includes hundreds of hours of shows, concerts, theatre productions and events recorded live. Pay-TV providers carrying Festival 4K include VOO in Belgium, Free in France, and Vodafone in Spain. “Following the introduction of Stingray Ambiance in 4K in September 2015, we are excited to add Festival 4K as a complement to our product offering,” said Mathieu Péloquin, SVP, marketing and communications of Stingray. "The demand for expertly curated cultural programming in 4K UHD quality is growing exponentially worldwide.

The acquisition of Festival 4K demonstrates Stingray’s commitment to providing Pay-TV providers and their subscribers with the widest variety of quality music content on all platforms.
