Cineflix Rights Moves into FAST Channels


Cineflix Rights is launching its first suite of FAST channels, with more than 1,000 hours of content featured across the trio of offerings.

Among the three new FAST channels, Real Disaster Channel delivers high-octane edge-of-your-seat thrills. The channel is anchored by the hit series Mayday: Air Disaster, now in its 24th season, alongside series such as Deadly Disasters, Rogue Earth and Dangerous Flights.

Crime & Justice taps into the global demand for true-crime content, putting viewers at the heart of the action as real-life investigations unfold. Key shows include multiple seasons of series such as Bizarre Murders, Crimes that Shook Britain and Murder She Solved.

Property & Reno is a one-stop shop for dream home inspiration, expert advice and reveals. Titles include Dream Home Makeovers with Sophie Robinson, Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever and World’s Greenest Homes.

Cineflix’s FAST channels are being rolled out globally on various platforms, including Amazon Freevee and Xumo Play in the U.S. and Roku in Canada, as well as with other partners in the coming months.

Tim Mutimer, CEO of Rights at Cineflix Media, said: “FAST is becoming an integral part of our business, enabling us to launch our must-watch shows direct to audiences worldwide. As the U.K.’s largest truly independent distributor, maximizing IP returns for our producer partners has always been central to our strategy and rolling out FAST channels will harness the potential of our growing catalog of content.”

Mike Gould, senior VP of digital at Cineflix Rights, added: “We’re very proud to bring three best-in-class FAST channels to the market across such high-engagement genres in partnership with leading top-tier FAST platforms. These channels feature some of the most popular shows from the Cineflix library, and we’re really excited to offer audiences such high-quality programming in an expertly curated environment. We look forward to continuing to build our FAST portfolio with more channels and platform deals to be announced soon.”
