Corus Entertainment has unveiled its new Global TV App, billed as an “all-in-one streaming experience.”
The app is being offered to users in two tiers: a free tier that will allow anyone access to Global News’ local and national news feeds, in addition to a limited selection of series from Global primetime, Food Network Canada and HGTV Canada; and a cable subscriber tier that will allow viewers to sign in with their provider credentials and feature both full seasons and live streams from the aforementioned networks, in addition to any Corus specialty networks included in their cable package like W Network, HISTORY, Showcase, and Slice. Corus says National Geographic and Adult Swim will also join the app’s list of offerings shortly.
“The new Global TV App is a reflection of Corus’ ever-evolving digital strategy, delivering Canadians a sophisticated, all-in-one streaming product that elevates their viewing experience,” said Troy Reeb, Executive Vice President of Broadcast Networks, Corus Entertainment. “We’re proud to deliver Canadians the first TV Everywhere app to offer 24/7 local and national news streams completely free, and an additional authenticated body of premium shows from not just Global but our exceptional suite of hit specialty networks. For the first time, it’s all in one place, live and on demand.”
Available for iOS, Android and Chromecast, in addition to watch.globaltv.com, the platform allows viewers to toggle between live network feeds and on demand offerings of current seasons of scripted and unscripted series.
The network says more platform updates will roll out in the coming months.
