FilmOn Launches Living History Channel Documenting Historical Events in Real Time

A new streaming channel from FilmOn Networks will allow audiences to witness historic events in real time.

FilmOn.com debuted its Living History project on Friday in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Its first series, the JFK collection, features nonstop programming about the president’s campaign, assassination and the the resulting Warren Commission investigation. Content, which will run until the end of the month, will also include footage of Kennedy’s first trip to Ireland and accounts of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The channel — a collaboration with CineBX Library — will also air original broadcasts and rare documentary footage of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Iranian Hostage Crisis and the Beatles performing atop the Apple building in London. Future specials will be devoted to Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, the Vietnam War, the Soviet War in Afghanistan and raw footage from other wars dating back to World War II.

“(Living History) won’t be about history,” FilmOn Networks Founder & CEO Alki David said. “It will be history itself, unfiltered, unexplained and raw. At once confusing, enlightening, devastating, as it unfolded in front of film and television cameras live.”
