Carnival Corporation announced it is creating a World Cup programming collection for OceanView, its digital streaming channel. The company’s first themed programming collection will offer a curated lineup of episodes from its Ocean Original programs that showcase Russia and previous World Cup host countries. The episodes are accessible through Oceanview on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire.
Those interested in knowing more about 2018 World Cup host Russia, and previous countries that have hosted the event can explore the themed collection on the OceanView streaming channel to watch episodes from ABC’s “Vacation Creation with Tommy Davidson and Andrea Feczko,” as well as NBC’s “The Voyager with Josh Garcia.” Additionally, the collection will include episodes from other Ocean Original programs, “Good Spirits” and “Local Eyes.”
The new World Cup collection from OceanView will showcase popular ports and destinations in Russia, along with examples of shore excursions that showcase unique experiences and culture across the country. In addition to content on Russia, the collection will highlight previous host countries Italy (1934, 1990), Mexico (1970), France (1938, 1998), Uruguay (1930), Argentina (1978), Sweden (1958) and Spain (1982).
OceanView, which is also accessible on ships from Carnival’s nine global cruise line brands, is the world’s first over-the-top (OTT) digital streaming channel from a travel provider for completely free access on land and at sea to travel content for viewers across the globe, according to Carnival. The original content is part of Carnival Corporation’s focus on producing and broadly distributing engaging and compelling experiential content.
Carnival Corporation – a leisure travel company whose nine cruise brands include Carnival Cruise Line, Cunard, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn – has created eight Ocean Original series, five of which have appeared on network or cable TV in the U.S. These Ocean Original programs are part of the company's focus on expanding awareness of and increasing demand for cruising vacations. Three of its Ocean Original TV programs – "Ocean Treks with Jeff Corwin," "The Voyager with Josh Garcia" and "Vacation Creation" – ranked as number one or two in their time slot during the inaugural season.
