dailyme is a TV -app that lets you download programs and watch them for free. When the device is connected to WiFi, current episodes are updated automatically.

“[…] we are particularly excited about this co-operation: BBC Worldwide programs stand for high quality. They have millions of fans all over the world. With more BBC formats, we will be able to increase reach figures by providing our users with premium content,” dailyme CEO Jonathan Dähne explained to VentureVillage.

dailyme TV has more than 500,000 unique mobile users per month in Germany, Switzerland and Austria which makes it the leading TV-app in the DACH region.

The company’s TV portfolio contains series, shows and movies as well as news, documentaries (e.g. on Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook and Steve Jobs) and kids programs from a variety of public and private channels such as ARD, ZDF, ARTE, MDR, ProSieben, SAT.1, kabeleins, SIXX, Sport1 and BBC.

Existing popular series with new seasons are available for viewing while new series complement the existing portfolio. Jamie Oliver’s cookery fans will find new content at dailyme as well as friends of classics like The Office, The Fades and Little Dorrit. According to dailyme, many of the programs are currently available on dailyme TV only.

“Weekly series are extremely important for us as an app publisher since they increase user retention. With 15 exciting BBC Worldwide series we make sure our users want to come back. And since all series are now available in both English and German it enables us to reach target groups we haven’t been able to reach before,“ Jonathan Dähne adds.
