Evoca and Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios have announced an agreement to bring eight channels, including The Weather Channel, to Evoca’s new pay OTA TV service.
Edge Networks announced the new pay TV service in April, claiming it will offer more than 80 channels for less than half the cost of a cable subscription. Evoca will use the new ATSC 3.0 standard to offer over-the-air (OTA) content for less than $50 per month. Evoca uses a proprietary receiver and an OTA antenna to deliver its channel bundle, which the company says means the quality of Evoca’s service will not be impacted by available internet bandwidth or network conditions.
“We are excited to join forces with Evoca to deliver the number one news/weather channel and lifestyle programming to a larger audience,” said Byron Allen, Founder/Chairman/CEO of Entertainment Studios/Allen Media Group.
“We are thrilled to welcome Entertainment Studios Networks and their 24-hour global networks with extensive entertainment and lifestyle programming to the Evoca line-up,” said Todd Achilles, Evoca CEO. “This distribution deal not only provides quality content for the Evoca viewer, but also brings together two companies with a shared vision to innovate television: Evoca with broadcast delivery and Entertainment Studios Networks with programming.”
