Final Shots: TBS & TNT Launch New Roku Streaming Apps

TBS and TNT have announced together the launch of brand new streaming apps for Roku which will provide viewers with a new way to watch content from both Turner networks digitally. The brand new interface will also be available via Google Chromecast and VIZIO SmartCast devices.

According to a press release, the new upgrades incorporate Vizbee technology to allows viewers to cast content seamlessly from a mobile device to any connected screen, without the need for a special app or plug-in. The apps also now include an “instant-on” feature, which allows users to watch premium content as soon as they open the app or website. The new “freeviews” feature allows first-time users to watch up to five minutes of any on-demand program or 10 minutes of any live event before being asked to sign in to an authenticated account. The latter improvements have also been integrated into both network websites.
