It’s unreal that we’re already counting down to Halloween and this year we have plenty of treats up our sleeve.
Launching later this fall, Bloody Disgusting is excited to partner with Cinedigm on a completely free horror streaming network featuring a mix of horror classics, contemporary cult favorites, and original programming that will reflect the programming and curatorial sensibilities of everyone here at Bloody.
It’s still a bit early to really dig deep into the candy bucket, but a brief unwrapping promises a channel that will celebrate all things horror alongside feature presentations of our original films. All new programming from Jon Grilz’ Creepy, Bloody Disgusting’s Boo Crew, SCP Archives, Horror Queers and This Week in Horror will also debut on the network this October with special trick-or-treat events planned for Halloween.
Cinedigm will also provide content from its catalog which includes hundreds of popular horror titles like The Collector, Psycho, White Zombie and Tales from the Crypt to foreign favorites such as Destroy All Monsters, World of Kanako and Tenebrae. The list is massive, but the goal here is to do something different with the presentation of these films.
On the techy side of things, the channel will be distributed as a free ad-supported linear television channel (FAST) and Ad-Supported Video on Demand (AVOD) platforms on connected TVs, digital set-top boxes, media-streaming devices, and web-based services across its global footprint of more than 670 million devices. Cinedigm will push the channel to more than 60 partners globally, which includes distribution partners such as Vizio, Samsung, Xumo, Tubi and more.
“We are excited to bring our slate of original programming and network of podcasts to new audiences through this partnership. Cinedigm is the perfect partner to help bring this network to market,” said our very own Tom Owen, President of Bloody Disgusting.
“For nearly twenty years, Bloody Disgusting has been a leading tastemaker and the top media destination for the massive global horror fanbase,” said Erick Opeka, President of Cinedigm Digital Networks. “Our goal is to partner with the market leader when we launch new channels, and in the horror genre, there is no better partner than Bloody Disgusting. We are excited to scare the hell out of the world together.”
