Streaming service TVPlayer has announced a new Plus subscription option, which gives you access to various channels for £5 a month. It's available on a month-by-month basis, so you don't need to sign up for a year at a time.

Hence it's been nicknamed the Spotify of TV.

The big draw is that the channels available are usually only offered via subscription packages. So using TVPlayer Plus, you can watch for less.

Channels available include Cartoon Network, Discovery, Eurosport, Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel and TLC.

"TVPlayer has seen significant success to date with over half a million people now watching TV over-the-top each week on our service," said Adam Smith, CEO and founder of SimpleStream, TVPlayer's parent company.

“Similar to what Netflix has done for movies and Spotify for music, TVPlayer Plus aims to offer a simplified viewing experience of traditional and premium television content; one which works with the devices you already have and lets you pause, modify or cancel your subscription whenever you like.”

The standard TVPlayer service will remain free following the launch of TVPlayer Plus. The firm will also offer an 'enhanced viewing experience' for paying customers, though there's no word on what this will entail.

TVPlayer Plus will be available on the iOS and Android platforms, as well as Amazon Fire TV devices. You'll also be able to watch through a browser on your PC, and via some smart TV brands, though there's no word on which.

There's also no word on when TVPlayer Plus will launch. We'll keep you posted.
