Cineflix Rights and Pluto TV, the leading free, ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) service today announced the launch of the Real Disaster FAST channel in the US and Canada.
Real Disaster Channel, the first of its kind, delivers high-octane edge-of-your-seat thrills and is anchored by global hit series Mayday: Air Disaster, now in its 24th season, alongside series such as Deadly Disasters, Rogue Earth, and Dangerous Flights.

We are delighted to be working with Pluto TV to now provide the channel to their US and Canadian viewers.”
Launching FAST channels, which draw on Cineflix Rights’ diverse library of thousands of hours of content, forms part of the distributor’s commercial strategy of maximizing IP revenue from digital opportunities, with more international rollouts to come over the next year.
The Real Disaster Channel is the latest of five FAST channels launched by Cineflix Rights on various platforms over the past nine months, sitting alongside genre channels Crime & Justice and Property & Reno which offer more than 1,000 hours of content from a wide range of programming, together with the high-profile single-brand channels American Pickers and Property Brothers.
