Frontier pushes into OTT video market with FreedomTV offering

Frontier has finally gone public with its OTT video plans, announcing its new FreedomTV service to target consumers who don't want to purchase a linear TV service.

Leveraging TiVo's Roamio OTA DVR, the service provider is offering FreedomTV as part of a bundle that includes broadband access, a TiVo DVR designed to record over-the-air broadcast TV, and the ability to stream SVOD services like Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Amazon Prime Video (NASDAQ: AMZN), as well as a digital TV antenna.

News of FreedomTV should not be of any great surprise. In May, Frontier's CEO Dan McCarthy told investors that it began a trial with TiVo to develop an OTT offering. Check out this FierceCable report.
