TVO (TVOntario) is set to release a free Google TV app which will allow users to watch various TVO programming on demand. This is in coordination with the first release of Google TV in Canada, coming in the form of the Sony Internet Player. Both are set for release tomorrow, August 17th, 2012.
Lisa de Wilde, Chief Executive Officer of TVO, had the following to say:
“TVO is pleased to be working with Sony to bring our content to a Canadian audience. As part of our aggressive digital strategy, TVO is always looking to leverage new technology and increase our impact by offering our educational programs on a variety of platforms.”
It is uncertain whether or not the TVO app will be available outside of Canada, so stay tuned for an update tomorrow.
Update: We received an email from TVO confirming that due to licensing issues, the app will only be available to Canadian residents.
