Online video provider Vimeo is to use its technology to power two over-the-top services from content company Lionsgate as it strives to expand its offer across app, website and social media platforms.

Lionsgate’s Laugh Out Loud comedy service and the Tribeca Shortlist streaming service are designed for film for lovers and the technology support kicked off in August 2017 with the launch of LOL.

A mobile first, multi-platform comedy streaming service with custom content delivered daily, Laugh Out Loud is a comedy brand and multi-platform network featuring original programming from comedy superstar Kevin Hart, stand-up legends and what are claimed to be globally-recognised digital influencers. LOL uses Vimeo’s flexible API and SDK technologies. Tribeca Shortlist is updated monthly  with personal movie recommendations from actors, directors, influencers, and more. Tribeca Shortlist is available on the web, mobile and through Roku, AppleTV, SlingTV and Amazon Channels. Tribeca Shortlist is using Vimeo’s OTT out-of-the-box solution.

Commenting on the business relationship, Julie Uhrman, Lionsgate executive vice president and general manager OTT ventures said: “We’re very pleased with the support that Vimeo’s advanced technology has already provided, and we look forward to continuing to work with them to help power Laugh Out Loud and Tribeca Shortlist as we grow our audience and subscriber base.”

Both companies share a common goal of providing high-quality content to audiences,” added Kathleen Barrett, general manager, Vimeo OTT  “The relationship between content provider and consumer is becoming more important than ever, and we’re proud to be part of the movement connecting audiences with content while delivering seamless viewing experiences through our powerful technology platform.”
