09.21 Europe/London, November 2, 2011 By Robert Briel
Entertainment Studios, a US-based independent producer and distributor of syndicated television programming for broadcasers has announced the launch of a global television subscription service platform.
SmartTV.com allows subscribers to watch live television networks and VOD on most devices everywhere in the world with monthky subscription prices starting at $1.99 (€1.44) per channel. A monthly subscription to all six channels costs $9.99.
Subscribers can select the live networks they want to watch on devices such as televisions, PCs, Mac computers, iPhones, iPads, iPod Touch, all Android phones and tablets, Boxee, and Roku set-top boxes. The new service also provides subscriber access to thousands of hours of VOD programming that consumers may watch worldwide.
“The SmartTV.com platform is a global game changer, consumer-friendly, and allows subscribers to select only the channels they want to watch,” said Byron Allen, Founder, chairman, and CEO of Entertainment Studios.
“The marketplace research has demonstrated for years that consumers have less than 20 channels that they actually watch. SmartTV.com meets the overwhelming demand of consumers to access a service that is fully personalised, portable, and saves the consumer a great deal of money each month–no installation fees and no long-term commitments.”
SmartTV.com plans to offer at least one linear channel in every major programming category within the next 12 months, and has premiered the service with six Entertainment Studios’ live, linear HD networks – Cars.TV, Comedy.TV, Es.TV, Mydestination.TV, Pets.TV, and Recipe.TV.
“SmartTV.com will aggressively expand the channel options for subscribers by launching over 100 networks over the next 24 months,” said Allen.
