Odyssey to Debut January on FilmOn(December 05, 2011)
Ephrata, PA, December 05, 2011 --(PR.com)-- The Carvell Company is set to launch Odyssey Network Television ("Odyssey") -- an all-new classic science-fiction, horror, and fantasy IPTV network. It'll debut January 1, 2012 on the FilmOn service and will be available around the world on TV via popular set-top devices, as well as on Android, iPhone, iPad handheld devices, and at FilmOn.com.
Odyssey will feature a variety of well-known and some lesser-known movies and television series starring Jack Nicholson, Vincent Price, Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney, Jr., Jack Palance, James Earl Jones, Mark Hamill, Bill Paxton, Brandon Lee, Robert Patrick, and many more. Plus, works from such master filmmakers like Roger Corman and George A. Romero.
"Think of Odyssey as a cross between Sci Fi Channel of 20 years ago and TCM," says Odyssey president Kevin Carvell. "We're excited to bring this kind of channel to this relatively new frontier of IPTV."
OdysseyNetwork.tv, the channel's official website, will regularly feature highlights of the month's programming, a rundown of upcoming genre conventions, and shopping. The site will also feature a spotlight on Living Legends, where you can actually hire a celebrity for your next event.
Odyssey will premiere New Year's Day with a 24-hour "One Step Beyond" marathon.
