Cinedigm and Bloody Disgusting announced a partnership today to launch a new horror streaming network, set to premiere this October.
Bloody Disgusting will be the first and only free source of premium horror content, the companies shared in a press release. The channel will include horror classics, cult favorites, and original content. The ad-supported channel will be available on connected TVs, streaming devices, and on the web with Cinedigm making the channel available to over 60 partners including distribution on Vizio, Samsung, Xumo, Tubi and more.
“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.”
Bloody Disgusting has been the world’s largest destination for horror content for nearly 20 years, with an audience of over 20 million. While horror represents over 9% of film and entertainment spending, there isn’t a dedicated ad-supported horror network available to viewers. Bloody Disgusting is out to change that.
In October, the new channel will see programming from Jon Grilz’ Creepy, Bloody Disgusting’s Boo Crew, SCP Archives, Horror Queers and This Week in Horror, along with special trick-or-treat events to celebrate Halloween. Cinedigm will also add content from its catalog with titles including The Collector, Psycho, White Zombie and Tales from the Crypt to foreign favorites such as Destroy All Monsters, World of Kanako and Tenebrae.
“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.
