The Paley Center for Media March 7 announced the launch of PaleyTV, a subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service showcasing Paley Center’s programming.
Programming includes live streams from upcoming PaleyFest LA 2019 (March 15-24), featuring the “Parks and Recreation” 10th anniversary reunion, and conversations with myriad television stars, including Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Rachael Brosnahan, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, RuPaul, Angela Bassett, Gina Rodriguez, Rachel Bloom, Norman Reedus, Alex O’Loughlin, Lucas Till, Jay Hernandez, Sonequa Martin-Green, Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown, among others.
Stephen Colbert from “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” is scheduled to give a separate presentation March 16, with tickets priced from $25.
Consumers have the option to purchase the live-stream package of all available programs for $7.99 and select individual events can be purchased on-demand for $1.99 each shortly after the live events take place. Select events from past PaleyFest festivals are now available to rent at PaleyCenter.org.
Revenue raised from PaleyTV supports the Paley Center’s educational initiatives, including classes for K-12 students that enhance media literacy and classroom learning, exhibits, year-round PaleyLive programming, and the preservation of the Paley Center’s renowned archive of television.
“With this new service, television fans from all fifty states and around the world, will have the opportunity to experience the same excitement as those in attendance at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood,” Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center CEO said in a statement.
