OTV is a lifestyle media company with its headquarters in Los Angeles, California. Its mission is to help people improve their lives and help make the world a happier, healthier and more peaceful planet. To accomplish its mission, OTV provides programming and advertising services, each strategically focused on the holistic consumer market, one of today's fastest growing sectors worldwide.
OTV serves this market with "body mind spirit" programming services through its owned and operated on demand and live channels on mobile devices, IPTV, cable, satellite and Over-the-Top (OTT) platforms. OTV delivers entertaining and inspiring content in the following popular categories: Life 101, Spirituality and Metaphysics, Natural Health, Current Affairs, Earth & Science, Love, Sex & Relationships.
In addition, OTV provides advertising services to brands targeting the holistic consumer market by delivering brand-sponsored, customized content across the internet based on targeted media planning and buying.
In September 1997, Oasis TV, Inc., a subsidiary of Movicorp, Inc., launched the Oasis Television Network on satellite to become the world's first Body Mind Spirit programming service in the world. It was founded by Robert Schnitzer after he realized mainstream media underserved the growing market of "cultural creatives," those for whom non-religious spirituality, world peace and social justice are primary life values.
From 1999 through 2001, Oasis TV expanded to free over-the-air television, with a 3-hour block, 7 days a week, broadcast throughout the Southeastern United States. From 2001-2003, with the start of streaming video on the web, Oasis TV partnered with Real Networks to launch the first worldwide subscription video-on-demand service. From 2002 through 2005, Oasis TV also was the "holistic" video provider of Mind-Body content for Microsoft's MSN.com portal.
In 2004, under then-president Victoria Overton, Oasis TV launched its free on demand service on Time Warner Cable throughout Los Angeles, California.
In 2007, OTV Media Group, Inc. was formed to own and operate Oasis TV by acquiring certain assets of Oasis TV's three founding companies which have since been wound down: Movicorp, Inc., Oasis TV, Inc. and OTV Digital, Inc. The assets acquired included hundreds of hours of video content, as well as carriage agreements with Time Warner and Comcast.
From 2007-2008, investment banker Azim Khamisa served as chairman while founder Robert Schnitzer remained as President/CEO. In 2008, Schnitzer added the role of board chairman to his responsibilities.
In 2009, OTV entered into cable and satellite carriage agreements with Cox, Charter and DISH Network, representing approximately 6.5 million cable and satellite households.
In 2010, the Company's board of directors elected former Time Warner CEO Gerald Levin as chairman.
In 2011, OTV rebranded its programming service "OTV" and launched its new 24/7 live linear IPTV channel to complement its on demand channels. OTV launched this new channel, plus its on demand channels, on "over-the-top" platforms, including Roku and Boxee. In addition, its website was customized for seamless, app-less viewing on iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry devices.
