MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwired - Jul 18, 2013) - TelVue® Corporation (PINKSHEETS: TEVE), the innovation leader in Television and Internet Broadcasting for media companies, cable operators, and communities has launched The Knowledge Network (tKN) channel for the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Knowledge Network, powered by TelVue CloudCast™, is now available to more than five million Roku users through the Roku Channel Store.

The Knowledge Network showcases educational programs and scientific research prepared by a consortium of universities led by the National Science Foundation. Programs are available on a scheduled linear channel and video-on-demand. Programs include documentary-length productions, public lectures, science and technology, and short-form public educational materials.

"TelVue is proud to have partnered with the NSF to bring The Knowledge Network to Roku's growing collection of educational channels," said Paul Andrews, TelVue's Senior VP for Sales and Marketing. "We have been working closely with the National Science Foundation, not only on the development of their new Roku Channel, but also on the digital media management system that enables efficient aggregation of content from contributing educational institutions."

The cloud-based TelVue Connect™ content management system used by The Knowledge Network allows the National Science Foundation to easily aggregate videos from its educational partners, no matter what the original format or the location of the contributor. TelVue Connect was designed specifically to support collaborative channels. The TelVue CloudCast™ Hosted Broadcast service enables web-based scheduling of the linear channel, management of the on-demand videos, and the ultimate delivery to Roku.
