Cinedigm Bows Fandor Streaming Service on The Roku Channel

Cinedigm May 9 announced that indie movie streaming platform Fandor is now available to subscribe to through The Roku Channel. Fandor is replacing Fandor Spotlight, which was previously available as a premium subscription on The Roku Channel.

Existing Fandor Spotlight subscribers will receive access to the new Fandor service, which includes a new look and new exclusive premieres. The re-launch marks a major milestone for the revamped Fandor, as The Roku Channel reached U.S. households with an estimated 80 million people in Q4 2021.

Fandor boasts a library of more than 1,000 hours of films and series in dozens of genres, including comedy, drama, film noir, and science fiction to rare gems including creature-feature, Pre-Code, avant-garde and grindhouse.

Originally launched in 2011, Fandor has served as a pioneer in the elevation of independent film through its streaming platform as well as through written and video editorial pieces dedicated to the art of cinema. The streaming service is refreshed monthly with films and series, including the documentary Coming Clean, focusing on the growing opioid epidemic in the U.S.; the music doc The Sound of Scars, which follows the rise and fall of the trailblazing hard rock group Life of Agony; and the festival darling Moon Rock for Monday set to exclusively premiere on Fandor May 24.

Cinedigm previously launched Screambox, The Dove Channel, CONtv and Docurama on The Roku Channel.
