The cat is out of the bag! Mohu Channels is officially available to the public via Kickstarter. Our press release went live at 8 am yesterday and at 9 am the same day we had 36 backers and had raised $3261–nearly 10% of our $35,000 goal. At noon today we had 294 backers and $27,534 dollars! It’s a great first day and we invite our social media followers to get in on the action soon.
We have many different ways you can back Mohu Channels on Kickstarter and two of those packages are designed for our existing HDTV antenna customers. Channels was built to hook up to a Mohu Leaf, but a Mohu Curve or Sky will work just fine too. The $79 package is the Channels box and the remote, available in limited quantities. The $89 is the same package, with larger quantities. Both those packages were created for our current customers If you have a Mohu Leaf , Curve or Sky and want to add Channels to that antenna, go for it and sign up on Kickstarter today. If you aren’t ready to make a big pledge, you can go ahead and pledge even $1. Every dollar counts towards our goal and we’d love to have you join the cord-cutting movement.
We are so excited about Mohu Channels that we are going take a moment and brag about some of its features (we’ll brag more in later blogs). Imagine you have an HDTV antenna and enjoy watching over-the-air (OTA) content like the Super Bowl or How I Met Your Mother, but feel like you may be missing out on something because you haven’t binge-watched Breaking Bad or haven’t seen the original seasons of Law & Order. And maybe hooking up a Roku or Apple TV is beyond your technical abilities. Mohu Channels is your answer! Just plug that small but mighty little white box into your antenna and TV, hook it up to your wifi and follow the on-screen instructions. Voila! In about 15 minutes you’ll be creating your own channel guide, downloading streaming apps such as Netflix or Amazon Instant (you will need a subscription for those) and checking your email–all on your TV and you’ll never have to switch remotes or inputs.
Mohu Channels is the first device of its kind to enable anyone to easily create their own personalized TV channel guide mash-up of their favorite over-the-air (OTA) content, streaming apps and websites together in a single viewing experience. Get yours today!
