Earlier this week we learned that Stirr planned to add 12 new networks in the months to come. Today three of these networks went live with the addition of American Classic, Hell’s Kitchen, and Kitchen Nightmare to the Stirr lineup.
With Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmare, you will find a 24/7 stream of classic Gordan Ramsey shows. With American Classics, you will find classic movies like Night of the Living dead.These new channels come as Stirr announced that they have hit 1 million downloads just 6 months after Stirr launch.
“We launched Stirr with the base premise that all of the national OTT services were ignoring the value of local programming, and in particular live local news,” said Christopher Ripley, Sinclair’s president and CEO. “Hitting the 1 million download milestone, combined with the immediate success of the STIRR City channel, has confirmed our strategy, creating the foundation for continued growth. We are excited to be at the forefront of OTT and believe STIRR will play an important role in the streaming future of local broadcast TV.”
Stirr also plans to expand its Stirr City channel into markets that currently do not have a Sinclair-owned local TV station. Stirr is available nationwide but the local news and Stirr City Channel are limited to markets that Sinclair has locals in. Stirr hopes to have Stirr City in more markets soon.
