Level 3 Communications has been selected to provide content delivery network (CDN) services to support live, 24/7 streaming of WealthTV’s lifestyle channel content over the Internet to Roku’s Web-enabled television set-top boxes nationwide.

WealthTV’s programming lineup features world travel, luxury cars, culinary delights, top fashion, international news and movies. Level 3 is supporting delivery of this content from encoded signal acquisition and caching to delivery to the consumer. Leveraging its suite of CDN services, Level 3 is delivering WealthTV’s content to Roku users in high-definition (HD), using HTTP adaptive bit rate streaming. WealthTV is also using Level 3’s token authentication and geo-intelligence to ensure the protection of content rights holders and delivery to authorized regions.

By working with Level 3 to stream its content to connected devices, WealthTV is able to expand its audience by offering a viable alternative to consumers otherwise unable to receive WealthTV via their cable provider.
