New York, NY – October 18, 2017 – Float Left, the award-winning provider of TV app solutions, announced today the launch of Ovation’s TV-Everywhere service, Ovation Now via Float Left’s advanced TV app solution, Flicast.
Available now for the first time on Roku, and soon to be launched on Apple TV and iOS and Android Mobile, the Ovation NOW app will include a robust lineup of both live and VOD content, highlighting fan favorites such as Versailles, The Borgias and The Artful Detective, as well as original behind-the-scenes content for the premiere of season two of Versailles and the US premiere of The Halcyon. Ovation NOW is available to Ovation’s subscribers via Adobe Primetime, a custom authentication tool.
“Bringing America’s only arts network to the “screen of choice” for every US cable subscriber has long been a vision of ours at Ovation,” said Will Marks, VP of Business Development and Digital at Ovation. “Launching Ovation NOW is a vital part of realizing that vision. Float Left has been an important part of bringing Ovation NOW to life.”
In addition to offering TVE authentication, Ovation NOW will also come equipped with a live stream guide, closed captioning for both Live and VOD, interactive ad support, and a customized video player. Float Left also worked closely with VidMover to offer the end-to-end video delivery solution.
