LOS ANGELES, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- United Global Media Group, Inc. (UGMedia) first conceptualized Beauty TV(R) in 2006 after founder, Rob E. Angelino, sold his brainchild, the Salon-TV Network. Today, Beauty TV is making waves.
"It was a natural progression," Angelino says. "Our beauty world connections needed another media outlet and we're excited to introduce the world's first Beauty TV network."
Angelino, a Latino entrepreneur, is also the founder of HairLab (www.hairlab.net), a medical and natural hair restoration clinic. Today, UGMedia owns all intellectual property trademarks and license trademarks for: Beauty TV(R); The Beauty Channel(R); the Beauty Network(R); Beauty MD(R); and HAIRLAB(R).
Beauty TV is part of the Beauty Network and operates as the world's first Beauty TV channel. It's a hybrid, over-the-top (OTT) TV network and mobile TV network that delivers beauty products, information and beauty TV programming 24/7 via multi-platform video content delivery.
Content is related to hairstyles and hair restoration, skin, nails, cosmetic surgery, health, interviews with industry icons, product reviews, trends and more. And, the "Beauty TV Minute" is an ongoing beauty newscast produced in English; it will soon be available in Spanish and Chinese.
Beauty TV programming first became available on mobile phones in Thailand. Its content then appeared in Hong Kong on the Manning's in-store TV alongside channels: E!, Entertainment Television, the National Geographic Channel, MTV Networks and the Discovery Channel.
In 2007, it began broadcasting over Joost (Skype founders). Over the next few years, it started podcasting on Apple iTunes and became available on TiVo. Samsung Connected TV added it to its offerings and it also became available on Roku's set top boxes. To date, Beauty TV has the combined potential to be viewed by 15-plus million. Later this year, it will be available on LG, Sony, Vizio and Panasonic TV platforms.
"We're also thrilled to have major players such as John Paul DeJoria, founder Paul Mitchell Systems, and Patron Tequila on our Beauty TV advisory board," Angelino says.
Angelino's mission for Beauty TV, a privately-funded network, is to report on the entire beauty industry; to ignite commerce through education and to host female-based beauty TV programming.
