SPIN Teams With Best Ever Channels to Launch New Music FAST Channel

SPIN Magazine and Best Ever Channels (BEC), a leading digital syndication studio and developer of original streaming programming, have announced the launch of a new SPIN music free ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channel, debuting March 21 exclusively on Amazon Freevee.

The newest addition to BEC’s portfolio of niche FAST channels, SPIN builds on the veteran music publication’s legacy, with a 24/7 streaming lineup of original programming, documentaries, interviews, behind-the-scenes specials, exclusive artist showcases, and curated music video playlists.

SPIN is a music magazine founded in 1985 by publisher Bob Guccione Jr. The publication stopped its print publication in 2012 and has been exclusively available online ever since.

The SPIN channel’s launch on Amazon Freevee will kick off with a free preview and music celebration on March 16 in Austin, Texas, during SXSW. The launch event, hosted by SPIN, will feature performances by, among others, Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam’s side project Painted Shield and headliner Killer Mike of the hip-hop duo Run the Jewels.

“The brand integrity of SPIN has always been paramount to every decision we make,” said SPIN CEO Jimmy Hutchinson. “Amazon’s Freevee is arguably one of the biggest platforms out there, with over 150 million potential viewers and we believe partnering with Best Ever Channels and Freevee is the best way to deliver on our brand promise to music fans everywhere.”

SPIN is one of the most recognized and respected music brands in the world, so it only makes sense to launch our new channel on the biggest stage in streaming,” said BEC co-CEO Barry Gordon. “Our partners at Amazon Freevee understand the power of the SPIN brand, and together we’ll reach a massive audience of fans hungry to connect with their favorite artists and the most authentic voice in music editorial.”

BEC’s growing lineup of FAST offerings includes its recently launched comedy channel, WITZ-Comedy TV; health, wealth, and wisdom channels Moreu, Commune, and Cinema Libre; cult film and television fan favorites Action!!! And Trailers From Hell; Carl Jackson-produced The Grid and CJC channels; and classic film and television channel Best TV Ever.

Amazon Freevee, formerly known as IMDb TV, is a streaming video service with thousands of premium movies and TV shows, including originals and FAST channels, available anytime, for free.
