Cinedigm is rolling out its digital-first linear networks and VOD services on Xumo in the U.S.
Through the partnership, Cinedigm’s channels will be made available and readily accessible via more than 45 percent of all smart TVs sold in the U.S., totaling more than 20 million households nationwide. The channels, including Dove Channel, Docurama, CONtv and Wham, are slated to launch early in the second quarter of 2018, with additional channels rolling out in the coming quarters. Xumo has strategic partnerships with companies such as LG Electronics, Hisense, VIZIO and Panasonic to provide one-click access for consumers.
“We’re proud to add Cinedigm’s lineup of digital-first networks to Xumo’s platform,” said Erick Opeka, the executive VP of Cinedigm Networks. “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.”
“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, the senior VP of content programming and acquisitions at Xumo. “We’re excited to partner with Cinedigm and provide our users with the ability to enjoy even more premium content.”
