Sinclair Television Group and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer announced Tuesday that their joint venture, the Comet TV science fiction network, will be available on Apple TV and Roku through a downloadable app.
Sinclair, the broadcast arm of Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc., and MGM launched Comet TV in 2015 to broadcast MGM-owned science fiction shows and movies in more than 100 markets. It's also available online.
Its programming includes such movies as "The Crow," "Gattaca" and "Labryinth," and television series such as "Stargate: Atlantis," "Mystery Science Theater 3000" and "Stargate: SG-1."
The app includes live playback on the network's broadcast feed and an integrated program schedule.
It will be available for download on Apple TV Generation 4 and Roku 3 and 4 series equipment. Availability on other digital platforms will be announced later this year, Sinclair and MGM said.
