Recently Omniverse stopped offering its live TV streaming service. This came as the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE) filed a lawsuit saying Omniverse, the company that powered many live TV streaming services at the time—including HDHomeRun Premium TV, SkyStream TV, and TikiLive—did not have the rights to this content. ACE’s members include some of the biggest names in TV with the goal of protecting their works.
Now Omniverse it promoting that they will be launching a new “one-stop” live TV service with over 50 top US TV channels. According to Omniverse’s website, the new service will launch in early November but beyond that details are extremely thin.
Omniverse’s current lawsuit is still not over as HovSat, the company Omniverse says sold them the rights, is not responding to requests for copies of the contract they reportedly have with DIRECTV.
For now, we will have to wait and see what Omniverse announces when they launch their new service next month. It is possible that they have found a new partner or have made deals directly with content companies to launch a new live TV streaming service.
