NETGEM TV MONTHLY TV HIGHLIGHTS – JUNE

WHAT’S ON IN JUNE

With Father’s Day around the corner, football games back on and tonnes of new movies to watch to get us all back in the summer mode after the bad weather days, Netgem TV lists its top recommendations on what to watch this month. 

London, UK, 9th June 2020 – While lockdown seems to ease across the nation, usual entertainment go-tos such as cinema, theatres and concert halls are still re-thinking the best and safest ways to reopen. In the meantime, TV content providers, like Netgem TV, continue to bring the best entertainment to screens across the nation. 

As from this week, football players return to the field and Netgem TV will provide subscribers with some of the best football games through its Premier Sports and LaLigaTV content. On June 21st, families will be so tempted by the movie arrivals on Rakuten TV, that Father’s Day will be a perfect occasion for the whole family to enjoy a popcorn and movie marathon. Parasite, Dolittle and The Personal History of David Copperfield are an example of just how good the new release slate looks like. Overall, the scripted and non-scripted content from all channels available through Netgem TV will take TV users to unexpected places without moving from their living rooms.
