BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (www.FILMON.com) -- Despite Court Orders restraining FilmOn.com from offering the Big Four Networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) in 70% of the country for free to the public, billionaire founder Alki David today opened another antenna array farm in Tampa, Florida bringing up the total number of major cities in the US which FilmOn offers local TV services to sixteen, far more than Aereo does.

Our Business To Business Licensing Service does not prohibit us from offering our platform to third parties such as MSO and Cable Companies nationwide, nor does it prevent FilmOn from offering access other local channels throughout the USA.
"FilmOn is already offering access to the Big Four (NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC), in New York State and Connecticut for free. We are also offering other local channels made up of Independent stations for free in New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, Washington DC, Atlanta, Boston, Tampa, Denver, Phoenix and Seattle.
"Additionally FilmOn offers another 500 plus live TV Channels licensed from broadcasters across the USA and abroad, as well as a 45 000 Video On Demand Titles all for free."
As per the sworn affidavits seen in court documents, the differences between Aereo's technology and FilmOn Antenna Array technology, is that FilmOn does not share its connected antennas, whereas Aereo does.
Alki David added, "Furthermore FilmOn technology uses third generation encoder-chip technology which we understand is the same as Aereo's which therefore makes FilmOn far more scalable than Aereo.
The most important thing of all, however, is that FilmOn offers viewing and DVR services for free to the consumer, whereas Aereo does not.
FilmOn is in a holding pattern in the 9th Circuit as it awaits a ruling from the Appeals court on its ability to offer all local channels for free to the public in the country's biggest jurisdiction, which includes California, Washington, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii.
