Simon & Schuster Videos Coming to Your TV

Ever wish you could watch book trailers on your television?

If you, like this GalleyCat editor, watch streaming video on your television through a Roku box, you can soon use the device to stream videos from Simon & Schuster. The deal is part of a series of video partnerships launched by the publisher, bringing literary videos to AOL, the Blinkx video search engine and the Taboola video platform.

Here’s more about the deal: “Simon & Schuster video will soon be available on your TV as anyone with a ROKU box (a set top box that allows video streaming through your television) will be able to tune into Simon & Schuster’s branded channels.  S&S videos will be periodically promoted in the Roku Channel Guide as people browse the service.”

According to the publisher, Simon & Schuster produces an average of 40 videos a month. The archive now counts 3,200 videos, including The Hunger Pains trailer embedded above.
