RBC Ministries Taps Float Left Interactive for Smart TV and Mobile Apps
JUPITER, Fla., May 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Float Left Interactive, a leader in Smart TV and Roku Channel development, and RBC Ministries, a leading Christian-based publisher and broadcaster, announced today the launch of a suite of Smart TV and mobile applications for RBC's award-winning broadcast, Day of Discovery.
Day of Discovery's four decades of programming make it one of the oldest continually running Christian broadcasts in US television history. It first aired on May 5, 1968, as television ministry of RBC Ministries and is now available on Roku, Google TV, as well as Android mobile and tablet devices.
RBC Ministries approached Float Left Interactive with the need to expand their digital media to new distribution outlets. Leveraging its Flicast™ solution and proprietary application framework, Float Left Interactive was able to rapidly deploy the Day of Discovery application to Roku, Google TV, and Android devices.
"The beauty of Flicast™ is that it removes the complexities of a fragmented app ecosystem by allowing our customers, such as RBC Ministries, to pre-populate our suite of reference apps with their own content," said Thomas Schaeffer, Float Left Interactive Chief Executive Officer. "This approach allows content publishers to simultaneously deliver engaging applications across more platforms faster than ever."
Day of Discovery's documentary-style programming covers a diverse range of relevant and thought-provoking topics and offers viewers a fresh, insightful look at current and historical events, social issues, prophecy, and issues of the Christian faith. The application is now available for free via the Roku Channel Store and the Google Play Store.
