MEDIA RELEASE: Cineflix Rights launches first suite of FAST channels
Cineflix Rights is moving into FAST (free, advertising-supported streaming TV) with the launch of three channels featuring more than 1,000 hours of content from some of the distributor’s longest-running show brands, which will be available to viewers on a range of platforms internationally.
Cineflix’s FAST channels are being rolled out globally on various platforms, including Amazon Freevee and Xumo Play in the US, Roku in Canada, as well as with other partners in the coming months
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.
Crime & Justice taps into the huge—and still growing—global demand for true crime content, putting viewers at the heart of the action as gripping and suspenseful real-life investigations unfold. Key shows include multiple seasons of series such as Bizarre Murders, Crimes that Shook Britain, and Murder She Solved.
Property & Reno is a one-stop shop for dream home inspiration, expert advice, and incredible reveals with fan-favourite titles like Dream Home Makeovers with Sophie Robinson, Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever, and World’s Greenest Homes.
Tim Mutimer, CEO Rights, Cineflix Media said: “FAST is becoming an integral part of our business, enabling us to launch our must-watch shows direct to audiences worldwide. As the UK’s largest truly independent distributor, maximising IP returns for our producer partners has always been central to our strategy and rolling out FAST channels will harness the potential of our growing catalogue of content.”
Mike Gould, SVP Digital, Cineflix Rights, who brokered the platform deals added: “We’re very proud to bring three best-in-class FAST channels to the market across such high-engagement genres, in partnership with leading top-tier FAST platforms. These channels feature some of the most popular shows from the Cineflix library, and we’re really excited to offer audiences such high-quality programming in an expertly curated environment. We look forward to continuing to build our FAST portfolio with more channels and platform deals to be announced soon.”
Cineflix Rights’ suite of FAST channels is operated by Frequency, the leading cloud-based video platform powering linear channels for content providers across the globe.
