Cinedigm has launched its digital-first linear networks and video-on-demand (VOD) services on US over-the-top (OTT) streaming platform, XUMO.

dovechannel 13 feb 2013XUMO provides OTT VOD and live, premium digital channels direct to consumers via smart TVs, mobile and streaming device integrations, and the developer has cut strategic partnerships with smart-TV companies such as LG Electronics, Hisense, VIZIO and Panasonic to have single-button functionality incorporated into the remote control.

Three of Cinedigm’s channels – Dove Channel, CONtv and Docurama – will now be accessible on more than 45% of all smart TVs sold in the US, which equates to more than 20 million households nationwide. They’re slated to launch in early second quarter 2018, with additional channels launching in the coming quarters.

“We’re proud to add Cinedigm’s lineup of digital-first networks to XUMO’s platform,” said Erick Opeka, EVP of Cinedigm. “XUMO’s deep integration into hardware literally puts Cinedigm’s channels into the lineup with America’s top networks, and provides an opportunity to significantly scale our advertising revenues.”

Cinedigm’s Dove Channel is a film and television service focused on faith-based and family-friendly programming for families. CONtv has an eclectic catalogue of over 2,800 quirky original series, elusive cult films and television shows, celebrated genre movies encompassing sci-fi, horror, fantasy, anime, grindhouse and martial arts action, and live coverage of pop culture events nationwide. Docurama meanwhile offers award-winning full-length and short-form documentaries, non-fiction TV programming, and behind-the-scenes interviews.

“The addition of Cinedigm’s premier networks brings its robust film and TV library directly to XUMO viewers on the biggest screen in the home,” said Stefan Van Engen, SVP, content programming & acquisitions, XUMO. “We’re excited to partner with Cinedigm and provide our users with the ability to enjoy even more premium content.”
