WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When YipTV launched in May, the company's vision was to provide top-quality international programming to the 40 million residents in the U.S. who were not born here or are still deeply rooted to their home countries. Today, YipTV enriches its commitment to change the way we watch TV by enhancing its free TV offer -- including offering an unlimited mix of channels free with no credit card required at sign up.
In addition to the channels offered free for an unlimited time, the company is also offering new subscribers nine premium channels free for one week.
"Foreign-born residents here today and their family members have had limited access to TV channels in the U.S. They are thirsty to have access to top-quality TV at a reasonable price, which is why we are offering the YipTV service for free to start," said YipTV CEO Michael Tribolet. "We're giving them that choice with free unlimited access to 17 channels that we think will be more to their liking. We believe our range of channels featuring entertainment, sports, news, music and lifestyle content is a compelling reason for our audience to experience what YipTV has to offer, without having to do anything more than become a free member. It's a win-win for everyone."
YipTV also offers a "Premium Membership" service, that will include today's 70-plus channels and new channels yet to come for a low, no contract subscription price of $14.99 a month, which can be shared with subscribers' family members on up to five devices, including smartphones, tablets and Internet connected TVs.
YipTV's free channels are comprised of leading entertainment, sports, family, music and news channels, including:
- NTN 24

With industry observers reporting rapid growth in the OTT video market and cord-cutting in multichannel TV, YipTV is moving aggressively to take a leadership position by bringing foreign-born consumers a stellar lineup of channels that originate outside the U.S. YipTV launched with 50 channels, has already added 11 and plans to add programming from Asia and Europe later this year.
