BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - September 22, 2016) - FOTV Media Networks Inc. has announced the addition of the TalentWatch channel to FilmOn TV's Filmon.com. The new music channel, with the goal of uncovering future 'household names,' is an extension of TalentWatch's innovative talent discovery platform founded by Gary Alan in 2010. The announcement was made by FOTV Media Networks Inc. CEO Alki David.
The concept behind the TalentWatch channel is to give music artists -- from every walk of life and from all over the world -- an opportunity to be seen by a TV audience. Every music artist has the chance to appear on 'TalentWatch' simply by uploading their videos to TalentWatch's website, where music fans help decide which videos should be selected for future shows. The channel is live on FilmOn.com at: http://www.filmon.com/tv/talentwatch
TalentWatch will reach FilmOn TV's 75 million monthly unique users and is the first US-based artist discovery platform channel to join the over-the-top ("OTT") streaming service's roster of over 600 channels. FOTV has deep roots in music programming, having live streamed concerts by Rihanna, Akon, Bone Thugs n Harmony, and was the exclusive streamer for Hot97's SummerJam. Hologram USA, also part of FOTV Media Networks, uses the patented technology that created the Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston hologram shows.
"As an entrepreneur in tech and media, I love truly innovative concepts," said FOTV Media Networks Inc. CEO Alki David. "TalentWatch's platform offers emerging music artists an amazing opportunity to get the exposure they deserve. We're thrilled to share TalentWatch's show on FilmOn.com with fans worldwide."
"We are excited to launch our channel on FilmOn TV," said Gary Alan, Founder and CEO of TalentWatch. "We will continue to align ourselves with leading distribution partners like FilmOn TV, in order to give under-the-radar artists the exposure they deserve. Since TalentWatch features musicians from all over the world, we're especially excited about FilmOn TV's global presence."
