EPIX, Starz expand TV Everywhere apps

Jeff Baumgartner | 06/19/2015

EPIX and Starz have each expanded their TV Everywhere applications. EPIX unveiled an app for Google's Android TV system that features live streams from four networks, a wide selection of video-on-demand titles and movie trailers. The Starz app, which includes about 300 movies and more than 150 episodes from original series, is now available on the Amazon Fire TV box and Fire TV Stick.

CTAM and its Member Companies have joined to focus increasing consumer awareness and usage of TV Everywhere services.

This website serves as a resource center for member companies to access current recommendations, research, tools and news about TV Everywhere.

A CTAM Board-appointed Steering Committee has led the way since 2013, establishing direction to address the following areas:

  •     Recommend best practices for the user experience in areas such as verification (authentication)
  •     Track implementation of these best practices
  •     Research and recommend the best category name for the service, as it moves from industry to consumer reference
  •     Develop a core service descriptor and supporting messages that resonate with consumers
  •     Plan and execute consumer campaigns to build awareness and promote the benefits of TV Everywhere

The Steering Committee directs the work of experts on two subcommittees to deliver User Experience (UX) and Marketing & Communications recommendations and tools. These subcommittees, in turn, confer frequently with the Residential Products Working Groups to ensure broad industry support of the recommendations.
