Vive Lifestyle Network Offers TV Content Creators Turnkey OTT Channel Service

Global long-form, linear 4K digital TV network lowers the barrier of entry to and levels the premium entertainment provider 'playing field' as part of its UHD Initiative and TV Revolution.

London, United Kingdom(15 Aug 2016)

Vive Lifestyle Network, the first linear ultra high definition OTT television network, is opening its universal platform to production companies, brands, local broadcasters, and other content creators by virtue of UHD and HD channels encompassed within the umbrella of VIVE Lifestyle Network (VLN) and its suite of branded connected TV and OTT apps.

VLN's Premium Channel Partner Service effectively alleviates the burdens of how to go about distribution and monetisation, not to mention the potential financial risks and inevitable development costs and time consuming processes such as platform contract negotiations. It is a streamlined, affordable alternative designed for premium long-form content creators to leverage so that they can concentrate on doing what they do best and leave the technology, infrastructure, distribution, promotion, and monetisation to VLN, garnering new audiences across a multitude of devices.

VLN Premium Channel Partners can expeditiously launch their own channels across wildly popular OTT devices like Roku, Amazon Fire, and Apple TV, as well as on Samsung UHD and HD Smart TV's. Although VLN does offer bespoke white label app development and service bundles, the premise of creating the Premium Channel Partner Service is to establish a cohesive destination of comprehensive entertainment on every screen so viewers can easily discover compelling original series and films in one convenient place rather than combing through the fragmented landscape of niche VOD services.

VLN channels shall be presented collectively within its proprietary EPG inside of each of its apps, respectively, and for the most part free to watch supported by relevant advertising, thus attracting an even wider global audience to the network and consequently providing ample cross promotion and content crossover opportunities. Though the network shall be largely linear, viewers will also have access to catch-up service and on-demand programmes.

In addition to its trademark lifestyle and factual entertainment fare, VLN shall also support low-latency, synchronised 4K and HD live streaming available with optional geo-targeting and pay-gating. VLN is also spearheading experiential entertainment enabling e-commerce, social, lead generation, and incentive driven engagement.

"Pulling together an all-inclusive channel service under one roof was a real challenge, especially with our UHD and HDR emphases, but we are really excited to offer fellow production companies and brands thenopportunity to take advantage of our efforts and drastically cut downnon time to market and associated costs," says John Jacaman, Managing Director of VIVE Lifestyle Network. "The way we look at it is that it's for the greater common good. Our channel partners benefit, as do the viewers, and ultimately the network as a whole."

Never before has it been as affordable to launch a TV channel on a network as prolific and prestigious as VLN. For more information about this unprecedented opportunity, visit http://vive-lifestyle.tv/ or email channels@vive-lifestyle.tv.
