LOS ANGELES, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Truli Media Group launches Truli.net, the world's only dynamic Christian social community and media content hub. The platform provides access to sermons from hundreds of ministries, family-friendly entertainment, educational programming and inspirational speakers from around the world.
Truli.net was founded by seasoned entertainment industry veteran Michael Jay Solomon, who is the former co-founder, Chairman and CEO of Telepictures Corp, President of Lorimar-Telepictures Corp and former President of Warner Bros. International Television. Mr. Solomon is well versed in the worldwide media and content distribution business; with a solid and notable track record in starting and growing leading television production and worldwide distribution companies, under Mr. Solomon's leadership Truli.net is poised for success within the growing faith and family based community.
"The vision of Truli is to deliver relevant content offered from many perspectives, so that no matter where you're coming from or where you'd like to go, you can interact with the content that you want, when you want it, and on the device of your choice," said Mr. Solomon, who is Founder, President and CEO of Truli.net. "We are excited to create a place where anyone can access a great variety of Christian and family-friendly content, but also interact within a social media community that shares their same belief, have conversations with others and even ask questions directly to ministries."
Truli.net offers a distribution platform focused on Christian and family-friendly content in a way unlike anything currently available. Truli.net is free and upon registration users can view, interact with and engage with its entire catalog of content. Truli.net is for ministries, individuals, artists, authors, film/television producers, seeking to gain visibility and provide their content in a targeted and relevant community linked by a shared belief. Truli.net sets itself apart by allowing the delivery of relevant content to people of all age groups.
Through its subsidiary, DOXA, there will be a focus on Christian youth between the ages of 18 and 30. Additionally, people will be able to buy hundreds of items through Truli's SHOP which is powered by Christian Books.
Users can interact directly with ministry partners and the available content by participating in live chats, adding a new dimension of interaction to each sermon. Users are encouraged to post comments, ask questions, request information, share needs, volunteer services and offer testimonies. Users can also like their favorite video through Truli's exclusive "Amen" button. Content will be stored in the cloud, so the user can see and hear videos any time of the day, month or year, and search for any subject amongst many categories.
HD content on the site includes films, music, educational material, comedy, entertainment, live streams and special programming for women and children. Truli.net can be accessed via desktop browsers, smartphones, tablets and smart TVs, in addition to streaming platforms including Google TV and Roku.
On Truli.net, content creators can expand their reach and audience at no cost. Ministries will be able to spread their message on a much larger scale while driving fundraising efforts to garner financial support though the "donate" button, which facilitates donations from users to ministries.
Truli has already signed many partnerships including: Campus Crusade For Christ, Lawrence Kennedy Ministries, International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Conference, Oral Roberts University, Global Christian Network (Korean) and Cash Luna (Spanish), among many others. Truli.net will have content from around the world in many languages.
Additionally, Truli.net has brought on board Fair Trade Services and BEC Recordings, two major labels specializing in Christian music. Seeing that music has enormous appeal throughout the world, Truli.net is seeking to enlarge its partnerships with additional labels and artists, aiming to grow their extensive music catalogue.
Truli has also joined forces with the internationally recognized Dove Foundation, to build the best family friendly online movie hub.
"We applaud Truli.net for developing a robust online platform for Christian families throughout the world," said Dick Rolfe, co-founder and CEO of The Dove Foundation. "This service will provide people of faith with relevant video content, the latest faith-based movies and support materials for their spiritual enrichment. Our team is pleased to play a role in this exciting venture."
Varun Soni, the Dean of Religious Life at USC says "Through its innovative platform, Truli.net has the unique opportunity to not only distribute Christian content around the world, but also to engender and inspire new conversations and communities."
