Cinedigm June 24 announced a partnership with streaming company FreeCast to bring nine of Cinedigm’s streaming networks to the former’s streaming service SelectTV. The service claims to make it easier to watch TV shows and movies by organizing all of the web’s entertainment into a comprehensive “SmartGuide.”
The guide searches, updates, organizes, and manages more than 2 million video sources daily. The service is available in browsers, iOS and Android apps, and supports casting to most major TVs via Chromecast and Airplay support.
Cinedigm channels coming to FreeCast include Bambu, Bob Ross Channel, Comedy Dynamics, CONtv, CONtv Anime, Docurama, Dove Channel, SoDrama and SoReal.
The deal with FreeCast is the latest expansion by Cinedigm Networks. The company plans on continued expansion this year of the company’s more than 330 million addressable devices in North America and more than 365 million internationally. The company plans to continue rapid expansion with digital platforms, OEMs, telcos, and cable & broadband providers worldwide.
“As families across North America seek more value out of their entertainment dollar, cord-cutting has truly become a mainstream phenomenon,” Erick Opeka, president of Cinedigm Digital Networks, said in a statement. ” SelectTV provides an amazing value to consumers and their SelectTV service puts us in front of a fast-growing, highly engaged user base. This deal furthers our mission of putting Cinedigm’s networks in every home in America, accessible on every connected device.”
