Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting have teamed up to launch a new horror streaming network, set to premiere in time for the Halloween season.

Called Bloody Disgusting, the streaming service is being positioned as the first and only free source for premium horror content, targeting genre enthusiasts and casual viewers alike. It will feature a mix of horror classics, contemporary cult favorites and original programming.

Bloody Disgusting will be distributed as a free ad-supported linear television channel and AVOD platforms on connected TVs, digital set-top boxes, media-streaming devices and web-based services across its global footprint of more than 670 million devices. Cinedigm will push the channel to more than 60 partners globally, which includes distribution partners such as Vizio, Samsung, Xumo, Tubi and more.

“We are excited to bring our slate of original programming and network of podcasts to new audiences through this partnership. Cinedigm is the perfect partner to help bring this network to market,” said Tom Owen, president of Bloody Disgusting.

“For nearly twenty years, Bloody Disgusting has been a leading tastemaker and the top media destination for the massive global horror fanbase,” said Erick Opeka, president of Cinedigm Digital Networks. “Our goal is to partner with the market leader when we launch new channels, and in the horror genre, there is no better partner than Bloody Disgusting. We are excited to scare the hell out of the world together.”
