FOTV Channel launches on Roku

October 31, 2016

FOTV Media Networks has confirmed that the FOTV Channel is now available on Roku players and Roku TVs globally. Roku users 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. 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.”

According to FOTV Media Networks, 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 capitalises on linear viewing, allowing users to simply tune to a channel, sit back and enjoy their programmes.
