FOTV Channel now available on Roku players
BEVERLY HILLS, CA – October 31, 2016 – FOTV Media Networks Inc. (proposed NasdaqCM symbol: FOTV) today announced that the FOTV Channel will be available on Roku® players and Roku TVs ™ in the U.S. starting October 27. Roku users around the world will now have access to FOTV’s OTT app, which features both LIVE TV and ON DEMAND sections. FOTV’s On-Demand offerings are available for free and are ad supported, as are most of the live and linear channels.
The FOTV channel will be available on Roku streaming players, the Roku Streaming Stick® and Roku TV models. The FOTV application is also available on iOS and Android devices, and is preloaded on every PC made by Lenovo. FilmOn.com Pay-TV subscribers can access additional live Pay TV channels from this app when they are logged into the channel on Roku.
“The FOTV Channel brings a rich library of on-demand and live content to Roku users,” said Alki David, Founder and CEO of FOTV Media Networks Inc. “By partnering with Roku, we’re able to extend the potential reach of our ad supported programming, which includes hundreds of channels across sports, news, movies, and music, as well as our patented hologram content to millions of Roku devices.”
Bringing this new FOTV channel to Roku users is a natural extension that leverages existing internal resources and adds to the entertainment offering on Roku. FOTV Media Networks already has a strong presence on the Roku platform through its subsidiary OVGuide, which powers over 20 ad-supported Roku channels. All advertising for those existing channels is managed by the FOTV Media Networks Ad Operations Team.
The new FOTV channel capitalizes on linear viewing, allowing users to simply tune to a channel, sit back and enjoy their programs. The frustrations of hunting around for a specific movie or TV show to watch becomes a thing of the past with the FOTV Channel.
FOTV Media Networks, which includes FilmOn.TV Networks Inc., CinemaNow LLC, OVGuide Inc. and Hologram USA FOTV Productions Inc., has filed registration statements for an initial public offering with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It expects the offering to close on or before November 11, 2016 and that it will begin trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “FOTV” shortly after closing. A prospectus is available for free by visiting EDGAR on the SEC web site at www.sec.gov. Alternatively, the company will arrange to send you the prospectus after filing if you request it by filling out the form on the website or calling toll-free 888 FOTV NOW (888 368 8669)
