In a move that it says unlocks premium mystery and drama content, Ovation TV, said to be America’s only arts network, has created a new linear destination Mystery Alley.
Mystery Alley Ovation 17Aug2020
With the launch coinciding with an expanded AVOD service with a deeper content library within the Ovation NOW app, the new service is said to be consistent with the mission of the arts network to connect the world to all forms of art and artistic expression through diversified programming.

It is based on the recent success of its international mystery titles such as Frankie Drake Mysteries, Murdoch Mysteries, Riviera, Midsomer Murders, The Code, and Agatha Christie’s Partners in Crime. Ovation believes that its viewers appreciate the craft of storytelling; and naturally gravitate to the intricate plots, complex characters, visual style, and cliff-hangers that comprise the masterful mysteries found on Ovation.

New titles will be added monthly to Mystery Alley on Ovation NOW, with the goal of tripling content offering by end of year. This content includes both TV series and films such as Midsomer Murders, The Scapegoat (starring Perry Mason’s Matthew Rhys) and Mary Higgins Clark: Pretend You Don’t See Her. The network will also air Mystery Alley titles on Saturday nights with stars Gabriel Byrne, Gillian Anderson, Ben Whishaw, and Dominic West in series like Secret State, The Fall, and The Hour.

Immediately, Mystery Alley programming will be available both on linear, at ovationtv.com/watch, and as a new destination on Ovation’s on-demand streaming app, Ovation NOW, available on digital platforms iOS, Android, Roku, and Amazon Fire. Mystery Alley on Ovation NOW is free to download and can be streamed on phones, tablets, set-top boxes, and connected TVs.

“We’re thrilled to be launching Mystery Alley for our viewers who clearly crave mysteries. Ovation TV will continue to feature and celebrate the Arts with engaging content that transcends various mediums and genres,” explained Scott Woodward, EVP of programming and production, Ovation TV. “Mystery Alley allows us to deliver on our commitment to programming that is artfully made and always satisfying, while unleashing a whole new catalogue of private detectives and whodunnits for our Ovation TV subscribers on-air, as well as with the general public on our digital platforms.”
