Cinedigm today announced that its The Dove Channel has acquired Dove.org and Christian Cinema. These Christian-focused streaming services will be merged into The Dove Channel.
“Over the last few years, we have perfected what we think is the best approach to enthusiast streaming: giving customers more of what they want in the medium they want – movies, podcasts, editorial, commerce – under the business model of their choice,” said Erick Opeka, president and chief strategy officer of Cinedigm. “This has led to record growth in other verticals for us, including Fandom, Genre, and Asian content, and we think that Faith & Family could be bigger than all of those combined. This one-two punch of acquisitions immediately provides us with an established consumer base, immediately accretive revenue, and multiple new avenues for growth. Much like we have done in other verticals, we expect to dramatically ramp up our offerings in original theatrical releases, podcasts, publishing, audiobooks and more. It is an exciting time to see this culmination after nearly 8 years of successful partnership with Dove.org and Giving Company.”
Many Christians may recognize the Dove Approved seal that listed content as free from controversial content.
This market for family-friendly content has exploded recently and now is a $1.5 billion industry as of 2020, according to TVTechnology.
The Dove Channel offers plans starting at $3.33 when billed yearly or $4.99 ad-free plans. You can also find a free version of The Dove Channel streaming on services like The Roku Channel.
