    Ameba gains 1,200 subscribers after two days on Google TV - Winnipeg Free Press (click for full article)

    "SLOWLY but surely, the number of digital platforms for delivering television content is growing and the Winnipeg-based Ameba children's programming service is growing with it.


    Last fall, Ameba launched its channel of commercial-free children's programming on the LG Smart TV platform.


    This week, the Ameba service was added to the Google TV Internet-connected TV platform, which means Ameba's $3.99-a-month channel is now easily available for screening on TV sets in more than five million homes. (Ameba's commercial-free streaming video service is also available on any Internet platform viewable on iPads, iPhones, PCs and laptops.)


    After only two days with its app on Google TV, Ameba increased its subscriber base by 1,200.


    "There is huge demand for kids' programming," said Tony Havelka, founder and CEO of Ameba.
    In addition to the Google TV box and the LG Smart TV platform, it can also be viewed on televisions via the Roku set-top box (makers of the original set-top boxes used exclusively for Netflix).


    Ameba's content library contains more than 2,000 hours of educational, preschool, music and multi-language programming aimed at kids age two to 12. While you won't find SpongeBob SquarePants, Sesame Street or mainstream Disney programs, Ameba features content from award-winning producers, including titles like WordWorld, Bunny Bop, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, BusyTown Mysteries, Ruffus the Dog and Ruby Skye P.I."

    Just subscribed to Ameba on my Sony GTV. Can only get audio. No video. Firmware v3.2. Puzzled.
