RiverTV Live & On-Demand Streaming Service Launching in Canada


VMedia is launching RiverTV as Canada’s first live TV and on-demand streaming channel platform.

RiverTV will offer a bundle of over 30 channels with thousands of hours of original programming, for $16.99 a month. The lineup will feature a mix of top-rated shows and movies on local Global TV stations, CHCH-TV, W Network, Showcase, Teletoon, YTV, Treehouse, HISTORY, Adult Swim, Family, Slice, Smithsonian Channel Canada, Crime & Investigation and many more. Subscribers can also enjoy new content with seven U.S. live and VOD streaming channels that are bundled only on RiverTV—Cheddar, Drink TV, Law & Crime, Newsmax, Newsy, Real Vision and REVOLT, with more channels to be available in the coming months. A la carte channels can be added to the RiverTV package, including Hollywood Suite, i24NEWS and Nick+ (coming soon).

“Access to live TV has never been easier,” said Alexei Tchernobrivets, CEO of VMedia. “Everyone gets a free trial, with no obligation, by signing up at www.rivertv.ca. Then just download the RiverTV app to any Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Edition smart TV, Apple or Android TV device, and start watching!”

“RiverTV is a terrific new choice particularly for adults aged 20 to 44 and families with young children, who consume video online or who watch traditional live TV,” said George Burger, co-founder of VMedia. “Underserved Canadian consumers finally have a cable-free, lower cost, live TV option, with thousands of hours of video-on-demand. VMedia is proud to be the first to develop a made-in-Canada solution.”
