First Mohu Channels Devices Available in June 2014 through Kickstarter Program

RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mohu, creator of the world's first paper-thin HDTV antenna, today announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign designed to help bring its new Mohu Channels Personal TV viewing device to market in June of this year. Mohu Channels is the first device of its kind to enable anyone to easily create their own personalized TV channel guide mash-up of their favorite Over-the-Air (OTA) content, streaming apps and websites together in a single viewing experience.

One of the biggest hurdles consumers face in the morphing world of television content is finding a way to easily access the TV content they want – whether it's free OTA broadcast programming, content from Netflix or Hulu+, or their favorite web-only shows and websites. Today, consumers have to hop through a jumble of inputs – from cable or satellite TV boxes and OTT boxes like Roku or Apple TV to new devices like Chromecast. Mohu Channels changes all that by allowing consumers to access their favorite TV content with a single, unified and personalized channel line-up without ever switching sources.

Mohu Channels combines a powerful HDTV antenna with an internet-enabled Android device that allows consumers to receive local and network broadcasts (like ABC, CBS and NBC), streaming apps (like Netflix, Hulu+ and YouTube), as well as content from websites and web video channels. All content is organized through a highly customizable TV channel guide, which can be accessed with the Mohu Channels universal remote control. The remote includes a full QWERTY backlit keyboard and integrated air mouse that makes finding content and typing on screen a cinch.

"One of the best TV inventions that has stood the test of time is the channel guide," said Mark Buff, co-founder and president of Mohu. "However, accessing the TV content you want through a single guide and then personalizing it has always been a pipe dream. Today, we're changing that with a new way to bring together all of your favorite TV content through a simple and easy to understand interface that consumers can make their own."

With Mohu Channels, consumers can make anything a channel. The guide is fully customizable, meaning the user decides what channels to add or remove. In addition, Mohu Channels allows channels to be moved anywhere in the guide. For example, consumers can put their favorite channels or apps at the top of their personal guide, while moving their least favorite ones to the bottom.

As part of the Mohu Channels Kickstarter program, Mohu is providing early backers with the opportunity to purchase the first available Mohu Channels devices, which include the backlit QWERTY keyboard remote control and one of the company's best-selling Leaf antennas (Leaf 30 or the amplified Leaf 50), for less than the product's final retail price when it debuts in June 2014.
