PHOENIX and CUPERTINO, Calif., Dec. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OWNZONES, a leading online content creator and aggregator, has joined forces with 1Mainstream, Inc. to distribute OWNZONES' premiere video, audio and written content to a host of new devices including Roku and Amazon Fire TV. The partnership will allow OWNZONES members even more flexibility and choice around how they consume the company's comprehensive streaming inventory.
"1Mainstream is undeniably the industry leading platform for rapid distribution of over-the-top streaming content across a wide variety of connected devices," said Dan Goman, OWNZONES Founder and President. "By leveraging 1 Mainstream's automated platform, we are able to minimize the time and resource investment in apps, devices and streaming technologies and spend more energy focusing on providing the best content and experience for our members."
The recent surge of new devices, platforms and providers catering to the increasing number of households who stream content through set-top devices creates a huge opportunity to reach a broader audience, but it also means more development costs for content creators and distributors. 1Mainstream provides a cost-effective solution that enables services like OWNZONES to deploy premium streaming inventory quickly and efficiently across virtually any device.
