Hamilton Paranormal Proadcaster signs SimulTV deal
Paranormal broadcaster Rob McConnell will be reaching a wider audience than ever this year.
SimulTV , is an Internet-based subscription service which describes its offerings as the “first fully social interactive online television”
Steven Turner, the company’s CEO, says it is a perfect fit for McConnell's ‘X’ Zone , where fans of the paranormal and the unusual can have discussions while watching the show.
“Content that sparks conversation and controversy and things like that are really good areas for us to focus us,” he says. “Whether you agree with someone’s opinion or not, it starts the debate and opens the dialogue.”
Once there is enough content from McConnell and others, The ‘X’ Zone will get its own channel on SimulTV, says Turner.
“To me it’s a natural progression,”
McConnell, 62, has published the ‘X’ Chronicles newspaper since 1992. It’s as popular as ever, he says. And there are over a million downloads of his daily ‘X’ Zone Radio Show podcasts a month plus it airs on over-the-air radio stations.
In 2010, McConnell developed an ‘X’ Zone show for Niagara Now TV (NNTV), but the broadcaster went dark before the show hit air.
McConnell has now partnered with Steve Benedict of AirPlayMedia for the latest endeavour, which features news and interviews with authors and prominent names in the paranormal community. They have 13 shows fully produced in broadcast HD ready to go, all filmed in AirPlayMedia’
Both believe the future of broadcasting lies beyond traditional radio and TV. Along with SimulTV, the show will also be available to download on Amazon, YouTube and Google Storefont .
“The broadcasting landscape is changing so much,” says Benedict.
“Now, the opportunity is around the Internet, to create programming that serves the world rather than serves Canada exclusively.”
