SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ZoneTV, which brings the best in digital-first video to pay TV homes, is headed to NATPE Miami Jan. 17-19 for the first time and is on the hunt for 10,000 hours of content to fill a planned programming expansion.
"NATPE calls itself the 'forum for new ideas,' and ZoneTV is all about creating TV's new delivery models," said Jeff Weber, CEO, ZoneTV. "Our whole programming concept is fresh: developing linear programming formats that pay TV providers can add to their line-ups without having to clear or manage bandwidth for the new content."
This cloud-based content is accessed by consumers via the electronic program guide (EPG). Once a program is selected from the EPG, a viewer is watching linear television, but with the advanced on-demand controls and a high powered personalized viewing experience. The programming is curated by genres into verticals focused on news, sports, comedy, tech, outdoors, kids and wellness, among others. ZoneTV has already licensed video content from such popular sources as Field and Stream, Saveur and Popular Science.
ZoneTV currently offers a variety of programming genres and casual games to video distributors. Its programming is carried by some of the largest telecoms and satellite providers in North America.
ZoneTV licenses the best of web-based entertainment and curates it for viewers. For content creators, that means greater visibility via an additive video outlet; for consumers it means viewers don't have to abandon the biggest and best screen in the house – the television – to watch the best of the web.
