“In the past eight years, we’ve built television, a kind a cable network for all intents and purposes, ” said AOL On Network VP global video strategy Tal Simantov. “We’ve built a cable network with 15 channels and almost one million movies, and we’re expanding the short format from all US broadcasters. The content is distributed among 2, 000 AOL sites, which have more than one billion viewers a month.”
In the past two years, AOL has been integrating smart television with content for viewing on Samsung Tocco, Sony Bravia, Xbox, and iOS and Android smartphones.
