Accedo Unleashes DogTV On Amazon Fire And Roku

Accedo has extended the world’s first TV channel for dogs, DOGTV to Amazon Fire TV devices across the globe and modernized DOGTV’s user experience on ROKU. 

Reduces Canine Stress And Separation Anxiety

Toronto, Canada and (DOGTV HQ), 10th May 2017 – Accedo (http://www.accedo.tv), the video experience pioneer, today announced that it has extended the world’s first TV channel for dogs, DOGTV (https://www.dogtv.com/), to Amazon Fire TV devices across the globe and modernized DOGTV’s user experience on ROKU.

DOGTV is already available in 13 countries and is a 24/7 digital TV channel scientifically designed to reduce stress and separation anxiety in dogs when left alone.

The DOGTV experience is managed by Accedo’s cloud-based video experience platform, Videa (http://www.accedo.tv/videa) and includes a mix of live and Video on Demand (VOD) content. In-app purchase will enable dog owners to purchase a monthly subscription for access to live and premium VOD content.

DOGTV helps stimulate, entertain, relax and habituate dogs with programming that introduces them to various movements, sounds, objects, experiences and behaviour patterns, all from a dog’s perspective.

“As more and more pet parents realize that TV programming for dogs can be both enriching and entertaining, the demand for DOGTV across platforms has increased,” commented Omri Urzad, VP of Digital, DOGTV. “Accedo’s technology platform has helped us meet this demand by extending access to our programming on Amazon Fire TV, which will ultimately help us reach new audiences and grow as a network.”

“Videa has the power to build, deliver and manage high performing video apps across all platforms – in real-time,” added Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “We’re truly excited to see the level of innovation in the TV industry at the moment, and targeted, highly specialised video services like DogTV are a huge opportunity for the industry to take advantage of new technology to cost-efficiently reach new audiences and revenue streams.”

DOGTV launched on Amazon Fire TV on 1st May.

Accedo will be demonstrating its range of solutions on its booth at BroadcastAsia (#4A2-01) from 23rd – 25th May.
