Santa Monica, CA – September 9, 2016
Zone·tv is bridging the gap between OTT digital-first content and linear cable/satellite TV by bringing new and compelling content to pay TV systems via its breakthrough zone·tv Dynamic Channels.
The zone·tv Dynamic Channels demonstration can be seen in the Ericsson Stand (Hall 1, D61) at IBC in Amsterdam September 8 – 12, 2016.
Zone·tv curates the best of digital and web content into interactive genre channels, by integrating OTT functionality on top of traditional linear channel capability to create its Dynamic Channels. Zone·tv’s model is to create and maintain Dynamic Channels on its advanced cloud platform, and distribute and monetize them via the pay TV operator’s set top box. The consumer accesses the channels from the electronic program guide, making discovery of this often hard to find content as easy as watching television. Zone·tv further simplifies an Operator’s environment by utilizing an Operator-friendly business model.
Zone·tv is presently in 8 million households in the US and Canada with its existing On Demand Channels and Interactive Games Channel. The response to the unique zone·tv Dynamic Channels offering has been so positive in North America, that the company is debuting it at IBC at the Ericsson stand.
“We have been very encouraged by the response to zone·tv’s Dynamic Channel offering both in North America and in earlier conversations with European pay TV operators.” said zone·tv CEO Jeff Weber. “While there is so much great content online, it is often difficult for viewers to find what they want to watch. Zone·tv finds the best digital content, curates it into Dynamic Channels, leverages the power of our advanced cloud platform, and turns it into easy to find, personalized television channels on the pay TV EPG. It turns online content into easy to use TV programming. Zone·tv brings together the best of the OTT and Pay TV worlds ”
