Bloody Disgusting Launching Free Ad-Supported Horror Streaming Service This Halloween
Bloody Disgusting is getting into the streaming game. The popular horror media brand is teaming up with Cinedigm to launch a new horror streaming platform this Halloween. But how will it hold up against Shudder, the premiere streaming platform for all things horror, genre, and niche? Well, the Bloody Disgusting streaming service will be free (with ads).
Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting announced that they are teaming up to launch a “new horror streaming network” that will premiere this Halloween season. Described as the “FIRST and ONLY free source for premium horror content, targeting genre enthusiasts and casual viewers alike,” the Bloody Disgusting streaming service will feature a mix of horror classics, cult favorites, and original programming.
But why launch a niche horror streaming platform when Shudder already exists, and has a passionate group of genre lovers subscribed to it? The Bloody Disgusting streaming service plans to set itself apart as a free ad-supported platform, which will be distributed as a linear television channel and on an Ad-Supported Video on Demand platform on connected TVs, digital set-top boxes, media-streaming devices, and web-based services across 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.
The Bloody Disgusting streaming service is set to launch in October 2020.
