Bermuda streaming TV provider expands into Cayman

A Bermuda-start-up which provides UK television programming has expanded into the Cayman Islands.

A press release announcing the company's growth stated: “Ex-Pat TV was introduced to Bermuda by professional photographer David Skinner who came across the concept while on holiday in Spain, where it was popular with the British expatriate population.”

After successfully launching his business in Bermuda, Mr Skinner explained he went on to sell boxes to Cayman Island residents. “Like Bermuda, the islands have a large expatriate population — and a lot of fans of UK TV generally. The feedback has been very positive,” he said.

The press release explained that an Ex-Pat TV set-top box is designed to replicate a Freeview receiver from the UK, Scandinavia or Greece, which provides live TV from these countries to any country in the world via an internet connection.

“British TV is popular around the world and you really don't have to be an expatriate to enjoy it.

“I installed it for myself first to see how it worked and I watch it all the time,” said Mr Skinner.
