Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) has announced a partnership with global OTT streaming service DistroTV to bring eight of the company’s networks – the fanspace-based outlet CONtv and CONtv Anime, the family-focused Dove Channel, and the fact-based Docurama, as well as Chinese pop culture channel BAMBU, stand-up special supplier Comedy Dynamics, combat sports hub COMBAT GO, and global Asian pop culture community HallyPop – to the free-to-use platform’s programming roster.
With the move, Cinedigm becomes one of the first major partners to join forces with the rapidly growing free streaming platform – further expanding the Company’s robust footprint, which already includes worldwide distribution on the industry’s top streaming services and devices.
