Beverly Hills-based streaming HDTV provider FilmOn.TV has a new app — FilmOn Live TV – that allows users to chat with friends and share live TV in HD simultaneously on Facebook.
The Facebook app can be downloaded from FilmOnFacebook.com; FilmOn.TV subscriptions start at $11.95 a month. The FilmOn.TV Web cable television service is delivered through the freely downloadable multi-platform HDi player or in Flash or app free to mobile devices.
According to the company, “With a yearly subscription, (users) get the FilmOn.TV AIR Device free. This device has made waves throughout the industry as the first digital over-the-air TV tuner combining IPTV channels. The AIR Device gives any computer access to live broadcast TV as well as FilmOn.TV’s original content.”
In addition, FilmOn.TV Mobile enables wireless devices to stream live TV over a basic 3G connection.
Having already closed a deal with FTTH Communications, a Minneapolis cableco, the company plans to license its content and technical platform to other MSOs and communications providers to provide a linear "TV Everywhere" service.
