Knockout LIVE will be the first network to stream in Blu-ray quality via IPTV, featuring 'Maximus Overdrive', non-stop music videos in high quality picture and sound.

The network started a sixty-day beta in February 2013 free to pre-subscribers and as a result gained input viewers and pre-subscribers well above expectations. KO Entertainment will offer its viewers a compression technology that promises to be more advanced than any other consumer experience ever released. We have targeted our launch on May 1, 2013, for Roku and other IPTV host systems.

The music network is the first of a series of networks to be introduced through the new entertainment suite focused on Blu-ray real-time streaming events. The Knockout 'Live' network will be hosting exclusive pay-per-view interactive concerts that are interactively charged, linking to all social networks with fully hosted formats.

The network introduces for the first time Blu-Ray level quality streaming access of these major entertainment events. The events can be viewed via most IP ready devices around the world and socially charged for the ultimate interactive experience.

The entertainment suite in Knockout LIVE can host up to fifty new networks on KO's current platform and expand with more investment in infrastructure. KO Entertainment is planning to add new entertainment network options in sports, comedy, television, and other niche media interests over the next several months.

Knockout Entertainment also intends to assist other IPTV global-ready networks which the network may host to further advance these select products at a higher quality access. Knockout LIVE will announce the additional networks within the suite as the agreements are reached with these network managers.
