Cinedigm July 8 announced that its three legacy streaming channels — Dove Channel, CONtv and Docurama — are now available on YouTube TV as optional add-ons, priced at $4.99 each monthly. Google-owned YouTube TV has more than than 3 million subscribers.
“Digital broadcasting has revolutionized television, because it has found a way to work with customers on their terms,” Jennifer Soltesz, VP of business development and strategy at Cinedigm, said in a statement.
Docurama features documentary films, including biographies, true-crime stories, investigations and feel-good stories. Popular titles include: Gangster Empire: Rise of the Mob, Beatles: How the Beatles Changed the World and Rick Steves’ Europe.
Dove Channel streams family-friendly content, feature films and television titles suitable for all audiences. Content includes comedy classics like Abbot and Costello, young adult series H20: Just Add Water and The Saddle Club and faith favorites like I’m in Love With a Church Girl, among others.
CONtv carries a diverse range of film and television essentials focusing on action/thriller, horror, anime and sci-fi/fantasy genres. With films featuring superstars like Dolph Lundgren and Sean Patrick Flannery (Acceleration), Danny Trejo (4GOT10), and Mark Strong and Taissa Farmiga (Anna), the channel is packed with content for pop culture fans to enjoy.
Through a mix of premium SVOD services and dedicated AVOD and FAST channels, Cinedigm’s streaming portfolio reaches indie film (Fandor), horror (Screambox & Bloody Disgusting) and family entertainment (Dove Channel), as well as dedicated channels for specialized entertainers, led by Bob Ross (The Bob Ross Channel).
“We look forward to launching additional channels to YouTube TV’s line-up of add-on channels over the next couple months,” Soltesz said.
