As the considered first device of its kind to bring together Over-the-Air (OTA) broadcast TV content, streaming apps and web content in one simple viewing experience, Mohu Channels is looking to transform the way people experience TV. Launched through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, Mohu Channels reached its initial fundraising goal in just two days with the support of its 1,200+ backers. Over the past 12 months, those backers helped the company refine and improve the product to create the device made publicly available today.
Founder and president of Mohu, Mark Buff stated:
“Cord cutting has gained massive momentum and is a reality for millions of Americans today. We are on a mission to give cord cutters the widest array of options they need to watch TV seamlessly at a price they can afford. Mohu Channels does this by breaking down the traditional walls of paid TV and locked set-top boxes. By providing a device that combines any content viewers want in one place and with a personalized channel guide, we’re making the TV experience open and personal.”
With the power of an HDTV antenna and a Mohu Channels streaming device, consumers can customize their setup with content from OTA broadcast stations like CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox and PBS; streaming services such as Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu+, and YouTube; and all of their favorite web content. Mohu Channels is also designed to be easily updated with new features through its firmware update system.
In addition to offering the industry’s first complete trifecta of content viewing options, Mohu Channels also offers the following enhanced features:
- Moho Channels Universal Remote: The QWERTY backlit keyboard and built-in air mouse are specifically designed to make searching for new content online easier for users.
- Time-Shifting: Allows users to store up to 30 minutes of television, giving them the ability to pause, rewind or fast forward OTA TV shows at their convenience.
- Side-Loading: Allows users to view their own video content contained in any USB-connected storage device.
“As the consumer interest in pay TV continues to diminish with rising prices and substandard service, cord cutting will only continue to grow stronger. Mohu Channels frees them from the shackles of paid TV, allowing them to customize their viewing experience at a price that is right for them.”
