A major company is making an effort to give viewers access to over 10 million episodes of popular TV shows from streaming video site Netflix.
Pinnacle, which provides televisions, streaming video and internet service, said Monday it will download and stream a number of shows including “House of Cards,” “Grimm,” “Bates Motel,” “Orange Is the New Black” and “Stranger Things” from the company’s streaming service.
Pivotal Technologies, a subsidiary of Alphabet Inc., which makes the Google search and video technology that powers the streaming service, will also make available a number on-demand shows on the Pivod TV app, the company said in a blog post.
“The company is investing in the future of TV and it’s great to see that many of these shows are now available to stream for free,” said David Futterman, president and chief executive of Pivot, in a statement.
PIVOT’s app, which launched last year, allows users to search for and download content.
Pivot, the content company, announced in December that it will allow users to watch shows on-Demand on its service starting in February, and that it would begin to offer those shows in the coming months.
Pippa Lee, president of Pivot’s digital product, said the company was excited about the news.
“This is a great moment for fans of Netflix and Pivovideo, a platform we’ve been building together since 2013,” she said in the blog post announcing the new service.
“Pivovision is proud to support Pivods on demand, and will continue to provide high quality content and innovative features in the weeks and months to come.”
Pivots TV app is currently available on iOS and Android.
