XiveTV has launched on the Roku streaming platform with a mission statement of offering "smart entertainment for the passionate and curious."

With more than two thousand hours of factual programmes, XiveTV is organised into searchable areas of interest, such as history, science, wildlife, adventure and more. New programmes are released every week.

"The breadth of available streaming entertainment is what sets the Roku platform apart from the competition and drives engagement among our customers," said Ed Lee, vice president of content at Roku. "XiveTV provides an enormous selection of high-quality documentary programming across a number of interest areas that we're certain our customers will enjoy."

The streaming online video documentary network is already live on Hulu, YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, and iOS and Android mobile apps.

"Roku has a highly-engaged and fast-growing audience, and has excelled at simplifying TV viewing for consumers who want easy access to quality content," said Greg Diefenbach, co-founder at XiveTV. "Through our expansion to the Roku platform, we're able to bring XiveTV to millions of curious viewers who want smart, factual entertainment across all of their screens."

Roku customers can download the XiveTV channel from the Roku Channel Store on Roku players and Roku TV models.
