PEG.TV offers live and on-demand community programming from hyperlocal TV stations across the country.
The Roku Player is today's most popular Internet-connected Over-the-Top (OTT) TV device offering access to services such as Netflix™, HuluPlus™ and PEG.TV™ to over 2.5 million Roku users in the U.S. and overseas. TelVue's PEG.TV Community TV application can be easily found in the Roku Channel Store, where it is 100% free to all Roku viewers. Community TV channels in the PEG.TV portal are powered by the TelVue CloudCast™ multi-screen streaming video service that also enables broadcasters to deliver to PCs, iPads, and mobile devices.
"We are thrilled to have quickly surpassed the 100 channel milestone offering 24x7 live streaming and on-demand content from some of the best public access, educational, and government community stations from Maine to Hawaii. PEG.TV is the largest PEG destination on Roku or any major Over-the-Top (OTT) platform," says Paul Andrews, TelVue's SVP of Sales & Marketing. "And we expect many more great channels to be added in the near future."
TelVue's PEG.TV Community TV channel on Roku is an important service because it provides PEG broadcasters a way to reach a wider audience and allows viewers to watch programming from communities that they care about no matter where they live. Additionally, PEG.TV gives PEG broadcasters the capability to deliver High-Definition (HD) programming to their viewers. Although many PEG stations are now producing HD programs, few if any are actually able deliver these high quality programs to viewers on traditional Cable TV channels. PEG.TV Community TV on Roku meets this need enabling viewers to watch community programming in stunning HD on large screen TVs in the comfort of their living rooms.
