"With the launch of CTV GO, thousands of hours of livestreamed and on demand content from CTV are now available," said Adam Ashton, Senior Vice-President, Business Operations, Bell Media. "It's a win-win-win as CTV GO strengthens the relationship between broadcaster, BDU and viewer by allowing valued subscribers to take CTV on the go, wherever they may be."
CTV GO offers a superior viewing experience unlike anything else offered in Canada, with an attractive interface and a fluid, easy-to-navigate user experience. A key feature of Bell Media's suite of TV Everywhere (TVE) apps is industry-leading technology that automatically delivers the best quality video to each user regardless of their internet connection.
Bell Media partnered with digital agency Digiflare to develop and launch the CTV GO application for Android phone and tablet. For the first time, Android users can now experience their favourite CTV shows wherever they go.
"We are proud to introduce this digital evolution of Canada's #1 TV brand, including CTV's expansion to Android," said Jon Taylor, Vice-President, Digital Products and Strategy. "The CTV GO app interface delivers on so many fronts - slick design, simple interface, quality content, beautiful video. It's a credit to both our in-house teams and our partners at Digiflare."
Bell is the first television provider to sign onto CTV GO, making it available to Fibe and Bell Satellite subscribers. Additional TV service providers launching CTV GO will be announced soon. Earlier this year, TMN GO became the first ever Canadian TVE product from a broadcaster to offer premium on demand programming, followed by the launch of Bravo GO in July. Bell Media will soon launch even more TVE products, including TSN GO, RDS GO, and CTV News GO.
