OVNIO's creator, Jason A. Swanston is a technologist and digital strategist in the music industry for over 18 years, and he's created OVNIO with indie artists in mind. OVNIO assist indie artist in a way where OVNIO is the only cable TV platform on the internet that allows artists to broadcast their videos in a TV like experience, fans and music lovers can socialize about the artists music in real-time, fans can purchase artists music from OVNIO music store (coming soon) and Itunes hyper-link, indie artists can chat directly with fans during their music video streams and debuts (through social networks), artists can place their banner ads within the TV Guide experience, music consumers can buy tickets to see artist perform live at their performances through the OVNIO pay-per-view channels and branding is inevitable. Artists can brand themselves in 105 countries by streaming their music videos and interviews on our music channels. The more the artists keeps their videos rotating on OVNIO music channels, the more international music lovers get to fall in love with their music and brand, we feel.
