STAMFORD, Conn., Nov 07, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
TumTiki (www.tumtiki.com), an online video site, is launching today with the largest video library of any web destination site. TumTiki was created and is operated by Frontier Communications (NYSE: FTR), one of the nation's largest providers of telecommunications services, that offers local and long-distance voice service, broadband Internet and digital television service.
TumTiki is available to anyone with internet access and features the largest library of premium TV episodes, movies, web original clips, and local content, of any destination site. Partnering with online video services such as Hulu, TumTiki streams free TV episodes from major networks, including ABC, NBC, Fox, Food Network, Bravo, FX, Syfy, HGTV, AMC, National Geographic, Oxygen, Comedy Central and TBS; the site also offers users a pay-per-view option for fee-based TV episodes and movies through Frontier's partnership with Amazon.com.
TumTiki is also a prime source of local market video content, featuring sports, news and other programming from select local TV affiliate stations.
"TV and movie watchers are very resourceful in searching multiple sites and services to find the content they want, but they are tired of constant searching. Consumers told us they would prefer an all-in-one browsing, searching and viewing experience. That's makes TumTiki unique. Everything is readily available at TumTiki.com," said Melinda White, Executive Vice President, Revenue Development, at Frontier Communications, "Giving viewers more control and personalization over their entertainment options is our focus at Frontier Communications. TumTiki offers high-quality, free and video-on-demand paid content, in a convenient web-based format."
TumTiki not only offers the largest content library, but also a fun set of social features enabling viewers to curate collections of videos with Facebook friends and earn TumTiki badges and points for watching shows. The site also has a patent-pending user interface and algorithms that improve the viewing and interactive experience.
TumTiki is an online video site from Frontier Communications featuring more than 700,000 free TV episodes, movies, original web series, professionally-produced clips and local programming directly within TumTiki.com, without redirecting to another site; and premium movies and episodes for rental. TumTiki partners with online video services like Hulu and Amazon.com, and the library includes videos from major networks, including ABC, NBC, Fox, Food Network, Bravo, FX, Syfy, HGTV, AMC, National Geographic, Oxygen, Comedy Central and TBS; and, in some markets, news and content from local TV affiliate stations.
