The FOTV Channel is expanding its global reach to television viewers, as the network is now available on international Roku players and Roku TVs. FOTV Media Networks Inc. made the announcement today that Roku users will now have access to FOTV’s OTT app, which features both live television 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.
Roku streaming players, the Roku Streaming Stick and Roku TV models will receive access to the FOTV Channel. The FOTV application is also available on iOS and Android devices, and is preloaded on every PC made by Lenovo. Additional live Pay TV channels are also available to FilmOn.com Pay-TV subscribers, who can access FOTV’s content from the app when they are logged into the channel on Roku. FOTV Media Networks already has a strong presence on the Roku platform through its subsidiary OVGuide, which allows users to find online video content.
“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.”
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.
