NimbleTV Announces Ambitious Domestic Rollout
- Cloud-Based TV Service, Which Now Supports National and NY Metro Programming, To Expand Platform this Year to Local Channels from Additional Nine US Cities
- Chicago to Launch August 1st
NEW YORK — NimbleTV, the cloud-based TV service that finally makes “TV Everywhere” a reality, today announces its latest domestic expansion plans.
NimbleTV enables customers with a cable subscription to watch TV from any location, on any device. Since last year, cable subscribers of Time Warner Cable, RCN, Cablevision and FiOS in the New York metro area have been able to “Nimble-ize” their pay TV plans by putting them in the cloud, allowing them to view their local programming anywhere. Also, customers without an existing cable subscription have been able to use NimbleTV’s concierge to sign-up for a plan via a service provider in their area, which is also put in the cloud.
Today, the company announced its service will expand beyond New York. NimbleTV will support channels from Chicago beginning August 1st, and later this year will add local channels from Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Detroit, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. Customers in these cities will be able to Nimble-ize their local, basic and premium cable channels, making them accessible throughout their homes, around town – or across the globe.
All packages include cloud-based HD-DVR with nearly limitless recording that eliminates scheduling conflicts.
“It’s true that TV today is everywhere – it’s all over the place, and it’s a mess. Pay TV is fragmented across devices, locations and providers. NimbleTV’s simple mission is to unify the viewing experience, making the TV that consumers are already paying for easily accessible to them, on their own terms,” said Anand Subramanian, founder and CEO of NimbleTV. “Supporting programming from cities across the country brings us one step closer to our goal, while respecting the existing TV ecosystem that pays creators for their content.”
NimbleTV has no affiliation with any cable or satellite operator. It works on Roku, Apple TV, Internet-enabled TVs, the latest browsers and operating systems, iOS and some Android devices. The service’s intuitive search feature enables customers to discover programming by show, title and genre. To subscribe to a particular NimbleTV package, customers must provide home addresses within the region where the desired service originates.
