With RiverTV, you have the option of watching TV live or on-demand at a later time.

“RiverTV is a terrific new choice particularly for adults aged 20-44 and families with young children, who consume video online or who watch traditional live TV,” said George Burger, co-founder of VMedia. “Underserved Canadian consumers finally have a cable-free, lower cost, live TV option, with thousands of hours of video-on-demand. VMedia is proud to be the first to develop a made-in-Canada solution.”

RiverTV also comes with seven US live and VOD channels such as Cheddar, Drink TV, Law & Crime, Newsmax, Newsy, Real Vision and REVOLT.

VMedia will also be adding support for ‘a la carte’ options like Hollywood Suite, i24News and Nick+ in the next few months.

With RiverTV, VMedia is targetting Canadian cord-cutters that want a more affordable live TV option without buying a cable subscription.

Unlike VMedia’s Anytime TV, RiverTV doesn’t require an internet subscription from the company, the service works with any internet service in Canada, making it much more flexible and accessible.

The RiverTV app is available on a number of platforms including Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS (both iPhone and iPad) and Android TV. VMedia says an Android app and web version of the service is coming soon.

RiverTV is available now and costs $16.99 CAD per month with no contracts, so you can cancel anytime.

You can sign up for RiverTV on their website and there’s a 7-day free trial.
