Global TV platform, SimulTV, aims to deliver on ‘TV Everywhere’ concept in the New Year
With the unprecedented success of “over-the-top” (OTT) services like Netflix, it is clear that there is an acutely defined market of consumers that, above all, crave immediacy and accessibility. They want to be able to watch their favorite shows and movies anywhere they want, anytime they want.
So far, successfully harnessing the potential of this “TV Everywhere” notion has been a challenge for industry leaders. However, for viewers all over, 2013 is kicking off to a promising beginning as start-up, SimulTV, puts an innovative spin on the idea with the introduction of their new global TV platform.
Recognizing how in recent years social media integration has proven vital to fundamental growth in the television industry, SimulTV has found a way to leverage the mass appeal of social media in a way that will maximize the overall television viewing experience.
SimulTV enables you to watch TV with anyone, anywhere, anytime on any web-enabled device. Their plan is to customize the TV Everywhere concept within the arena of social media by providing a service where consumers can watch TV and engage with others simultaneously while using a singular medium.
A product of Interconnect Media Network Systems (IMN), SimulTV allows friends and family, no matter where they are in the world, to concurrently share streaming or video on demand content while communicating through picture-in-picture, video chats, voice chats, and text chats in addition to popular social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
