With so many digital content options these days – live TV, VOD, Netflix, Redbox, Hulu, Amazon, etc. – there’s a seemingly endless array of programming to discover. But with so many choices at your fingertips, finding the right content for you and your family can often be a difficult search. Selecting the right device, then a specific app or service, then a single program from an often sizable selection can be a daunting task for folks who don’t already know what they want or where to find it.
That’s why Fan TV and Time Warner Cable have announced the much-anticipated release of Fan TV, a revolutionary new way to consume live TV and streaming content with a simple, integrated discovery experience. In conjunction with its pay TV partners, Fan TV is pioneering a different approach to live TV and digital streaming content. The Fan TV device will pair your TWC TV content with a number of on-demand streaming services – so all choices can be viewed in one convenient screen.
This innovative partnership will make Fan TV available to current TWC video subscribers. The first wave of streaming services available on Fan TV will include Redbox Instant by Verizon, Crackle and Target Ticket, as well as the Rhapsody music service. More streaming services will be added over time.
Customers will have access to TWC’s in-home viewing content via Fan TV similar to using the existing TWC TV app on Roku, Xbox 360 and Samsung Smart TV’s in any room of the home.
Shipping in Q2 of 2014, Fan TV is currently available for pre-order for $99 at https://www.fan.tv/tv. The sleek, one-touch remote makes navigating the simply designed menu system a virtual breeze. Integration with services such as Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes provides viewers with additional information on the cast, crew and critical reception of the choices available to them.
