Seattle, WA and New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) October 14, 2010
ivi TV announced today that just 30 days since its launch, it will be rolling out Los Angeles as the next major market ivi TV will service beginning October 28th, 2010. The new market rollout development comes just days after ivi TV added an ED ("Enhanced Definition") feature to its standard player, which dramatically increases the picture quality, regardless of bandwidth.
"As Mark Twain once quipped on a similar journey to New Orleans, 'The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.' In just 30 days, rather than crumbling under NAB assault, we have grown stronger as we galvanize a groundswell of users, becoming the singular answer to a multi-million viewer problem while simultaneously capturing the world's imagination with our first-to-market live television service," said ivi TV's founder and CEO, Todd Weaver. "Our team very much looks forward to participating at CTAM and exchanging more ideas about how to help cable companies and broadcasters grapple with the technological hurdles that come with offering a truly compelling live TV experience online. From powering a la carte TV programming to absorbing the uncertainty of extending cable channels online and harnessing cord-cutting as an opportunity rather than a threat, the possibilities for partnership with ivi TV are endless."
ivi TV's ubiquity isn't limited to its online viral spread. Its CEO is already confirmed to speak on panels at many top television and media conferences throughout the Winter and Spring, including the following:
