Cinedigm Jan. 9 announced it will distribute subscription streaming channels (Dove Channel, CONtv, Docurama) through the Vewd App Store.
Vewd is OTT software with an install base of over 200 million devices, featuring over 1,500 entertaining apps optimized for Smart TVs, Blu-ray Disc players and set-top boxes from Samsung, Sony, Verizon and TiVo, among others.
To date, values-based Dove Channel, Comic-Con-themed CONtv and documentary-based Docurama have over 2.5 Million App downloads.
“Vewd’s extensive global footprint with dozens of key manufacturers helps us reach millions of devices quickly, efficiently, and easily,” Erick Opeka, EVP and GM of Cinedigm Networks, said in a statement.
The deal comes as Los Angeles-based Cinedigm expanded OTT offerings to Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast and Android TV.
These developments will expand the reach of Cinedigm channels to more than 320 million potential consumers in key OTT markets worldwide.
“Cinedigm has tailored their content to different audiences, introducing unique channels that focus on the strengths of their catalog. Together, we can bring significant scale and reach to these channels on a global basis,” said Daniel Nordberg, SVP of partnerships at Vewd.
