NBCUniversal leads TV everywhere contributors

NBCUniversal provides the largest number of channels of any content provider to US TV everywhere services, while Epix and HBO support TV Everywhere on more second-screen devices than any other premium or basic cable programmer, according to research from IHS.

Meanwhile, all major TV service providers in the US have launched TV everywhere services, according to IHS, with video-on-demand streaming channels now numbering 73 and live streaming services numbering 31.

NBCUniversal provides 15 of its total of 18 channels, or 83% of its channels, to pay TV subscribers who authenticate second-screen devices.

NBCUniversal provides 15 VoD channels and five live streaming channels, followed by Time Warner with nine VoD channels and three live streaming channels.

HBO, Cinemax and BTN2Go are the only three US channel providers to have TV everywhere agreements with all major US pay TV operators, while Showtime is the only premium provider delivering a live linear streaming services to TV Everywhere service providers.

Liberty Media’s Starz And Encore launched TV everywhere at the end of last year, but lack authentication deals with Comcast and Dish Network, while Discovery remains the last holdout amongst major channel providers in delivering its content to TV everywhere services.
