Pittsburgh, PA, June 26, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- WhereverTV Broadcasting Corp. (OTC Pink: TVTV), a leader in delivering Over the Top (OTT) subscription television services to a variety of devices including SmartTVs, streaming media players, smartphones and TabletPCs, today announced it is extending a public offer to Paula Deen for her own 24/7 television channel that would be broadcast across WhereverTV's Internet TV platform.
"Paula Deen is an American icon," said Mark Cavicchia, TVTV’s CEO, “and while we do not condone racial or ethnic slurs in any form or fashion, we are empathetic as to how quickly Paula Deen was found guilty in the court of public opinion, and how her public apologies were basically ignored. Our country was founded upon pioneering spirit, innovation, hard work, and good intentions. Paula Deen has similarly long exemplified such qualities throughout her professional career. We want Paula to know that WhereverTV has a home for her if she is interested in continuing to reach her fans through Internet Television in the days and years ahead. We believe the 'Paula Deen Channel' would be warmly welcomed by many viewers around the world and WhereverTV has a revolutionary platform from which she can deliver it."
The WhereverTV platform has users in 190 countries who watch live Internet television on iPhone, iPads, TabletPCs, and regular televisions and is available anywhere an internet connection is available. Internet TV is a fast growing segment of the subscription TV market because it offers subscription services and network channels through the Internet rather than fixed-line cable or geographically limited satellite services. WhereverTV is an economically viable alternative to these traditional television distribution methods. Furthermore, Internet TV also provides the subscriber with additional benefits such as personalization and portability, features that are not typically afforded to cable or satellite subscribers.
Mr. Cavicchia concluded, “We believe the new era of television subscribers known as 'cord-cutters' and 'cord-nevers' are looking for innovative programming from well-known content creators like Paula Deen and she would be a welcome addition to the WhereverTV line-up. It is a natural progression that TV personalities, innovative thinkers, content owners and media aggregators want to align themselves with the exponential growth of Internet TV, making their brands available across a broad spectrum of devices and viewing platforms.”
