A couple of weeks ago, I teased about a new venture that was keeping me away from the blog. So for those of you who wanted to know more, here goes:
I'm pleased to announce that my company Island Dreamer Enterprises has successfully launched TravelDreamer.TV and GlobeTrekker.TV, available now in the Roku Channel Store in the US.
TravelDreamer.TV serves up short-form travel content from both respected travel journalists like my former Travel Channel collaborator Tracy Gallagher (Travel Confidential) to up-and-coming digital TJs like Ryan Van Duzer (DuzerTV) and Mike Corey (Kick the Grind).
We've also been granted the exclusive right to develop and operate GlobeTrekker.TV for 555 Productions. Globe Trekker is a household name in travel programming around the world. And with the new subscription channel, Roku viewers can access full length programs from the series' entire library.
Island Dreamer is very proud to be associated with the Globe Trekker brand. I’ve been a fan of the series, its stars and producers from the very start. When I headed up programming for Discovery Networks International and the Travel Channel US, Globe Trekker played a prominent role in my content mix. So it’s only fitting that we’re working together again on TravelDreamer.TV and in the creation of GlobeTrekker.TV for the Roku platform.
If you have a Roku device, please add it to your box's lineup. If all goes well, we'll be rolling out to other platforms in 2015.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...
