AtheistTV to Transition to Exclusively VOD Service

Cranford, NJ—American Atheists today announced that its television service AtheistTV, the first and only network hosting content exclusively by and for atheists, will transition to exclusively a video on demand service, similar to Netflix and Hulu.

“This change reflects the reality of the way that people are consuming content,” said David Silverman, president of American Atheists. “People are telling us that they want more content and they want to be in control. This change makes that possible.”

Since launching AtheistTV in July 2014, tens of thousands of users have tuned in on the Roku platform and many more have watched online.

This transition will end the live stream of content, but will include an expansion to the Amazon Fire Platform for video on demand content in the coming months.

“Providing content on demand means that we can provide more shows to more households in a way that more people are demanding. Focusing our resources to give people the content they want the way they want it makes sense,” added Silverman.

The live stream will end on Friday, September 11.

    I appreciate what American Atheist has done and is doing for all Atheist
    everywhere. I love Atheist TV. I like the video on demand but I miss
    the live streaming. I enjoyed leaving it on all day long and even when I
    slept so if I had to get up through the night I could listen to it. It
    helped me sleep better. Is there any way we could have both as an
    option?

    Same comment as Aaron. Disappointed in the loss of the live stream. Pretty much based my purchase on ROKU for the AtheistTV channel. I can understand VOD but hope that we can get some up to date content available as well. Thanks.
