OVEE is a shared media viewing experience – a powerful way to reach, connect and engage with audiences.

Created by ITVS and funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), OVEE combines quality HD media and livestream content with the community-building conversation of social media in a single-screen experience.

With OVEE, filmmakers, educators, public media stations and other partners create online screenings that bring together fans, students, subject experts and special guests to watch streaming media and chat live in a virtual theater. The OVEE chat enables audience members to discuss the topic, share resources, and ask questions of panelists and experts during live discussions.
