FilmOn.tv debuts first OTA ‘primary channel’
Alki David, Founder and CEO of FilmOn.tv Networks has launched the company’s first over-the-air ‘primary channel’ in the LA market place. FilmOn.tv LA is being carried on all major cable platforms in Los Angeles including Time Warner, Dish Network and DirecTV.
The programming fare for the new channel includes a variety of live and interactive shows starring Ice-T, Mike “The Situation,” comedian Andy Dick and Kato Kaelin. Sports aficionados can watch UFC action and other unique television viewing experiences in the form of new series, Battlecam, an interactive programme where the viewer becomes the star of the show via their Internet connection and webcam.
Alki David commented, “FilmOn.tv LA (is the last piece of the puzzle for FilmOn.tv. This is true interactive television where the audience gets to vote and interact by webcam or mobile phone. FilmOn.tv LA is currently available in 5.6 Million homes in the Los Angeles and surrounding markets. We will also launch FilmOn in other major cities later this year as well as on Satellite. I expect by the end of next year to be available in a good percentage of the Cable Universe and OTA in the USA as well as major international territories.”
