In 2016, Carnival Corporation produced TV series that it hoped would become billboards for cruising.
The largest cruise ship company in the world announced on Monday, September 25, it had come up with a new tool to get the programs, and more, to consumers.
A free over-the-top digital streaming channel, OceanView will be available on the digital streaming platforms Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Roku. Programming will appear on half of company’s ships and on a dedicated website in October.
The channel will feature episodes of shows that Carnival has produced. These include “Vacation Creation,” airing on The CW for its 1st season and moving to ABC; “Ocean Treks with Jeff Corwin,” airing on ABC stations; “The Voyager with Josh Garcia,” airing on NBC channels; and “Good Spirits,” seen on A&E and FYI.
The corporation is making a couple of new direct-to-digital series, named “GO” and “Local Eyes.” The shows' episodes are expected to be short, with “GO” following Trek Thunder Kelly and “Local Eyes” featuring Anji Corley.
OceanView will include videos from the 9 brands of Carnival Corporation.
