BATON ROUGE, LA., May 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clikia Corp. (OTC PINK: CLKA), provider of ClikiaTV, a streaming (over-the-top, OTT) cable television subscription service, today announced the establishment of its Roku Private Channel, “clikiacorp”, and the completion of the first significant update of its App across the Apple iOS and Google Playstore platforms. This same update for Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV will be completed in June 2018, as will the ClikiaTV Roku Public Channel.
“Establishing our ‘clikiacorp’ Roku Private Channel is an extremely important step towards our objective of ClikiaTV ubiquity – streaming everywhere, all the time, right now, on any device,” stated David Loflin, CLKA’s CEO. “Also, the already completed, as well as the in-process updates, to the ClikiaTV App across all other platforms provides a more rewarding subscriber experience and better technical performance,” Mr. Loflin further stated that the company is increasingly convinced that ClikiaTV is well positioned in the OTT space.
Industry Data Shows ClikiaTV Sits in OTT Industry Sweet Spot.
According to a recent study from Digital TV Research, global OTT TV revenues will more than double from $37 billion in 2016 to $83 billion in 2022, driven in large measure by the success of subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) services, such as Netflix and ClikiaTV. It is the success of SVOD services like Netflix that propelled SVOD to the top of OTT revenues sources in 2013: by 2022, SVOD is expected to generate $41.2 billion, or approximately 50%, of OTT revenues, compared to $29.0 billion for advertising-supported video on demand (VOD), $8.1 billion for download-to-own and electronic sell-through and $5.2 billion for rental.
