Company Description

Fan TV is the simplest way for people to find, watch and share the movies and TV shows they love – available today on iOS and the web, and coming soon to TV.

Founded in 2010, Fan TV is based in Silicon Valley and backed by the investors behind Tivo, Netflix and Sonos. The company is working with leading pay TV providers to roll out the device in support of their IPTV transition, and has already completed a trial with Cox Communications – the 3rd largest cable company in the U.S.

The Fan TV set-top box -- a revolutionary new way to watch TV - was just unveiled at D: All Things Digital in May 2013.  It combines TV, DVR, video-on-demand and streaming services into one device with a revolutionary touch remote, what Time Magazine calls "the home entertainment god box."
