LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--REVRY™, the world’s first streaming network dedicated to all forms of digital entertainment created by and for the LGBTQ and allied audiences, announces the availability of its diverse media service. The company kicks off Pride Season 2016 and celebrates its roots in the community with the launch of its on-demand subscription service that, for only $4.99/month or $54.99/year, enables audiences to binge on a variety of digital entertainment that, unlike other subscription services, also includes music and podcasts.
REVRY is also the first global lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer-identified streaming service to have a presence on Apple TV and Google Chromecast, as well as being available on Roku, iOS and Android devices. Operating through a competitively-priced SVOD model, REVRY seamlessly syncs across all devices and provides the best “Queerated™ Entertainment” for the community and allies. From feature-length movies to short form stories from the web, REVRY provides a broad range of genres including comedies, dramas, musicals, lifestyle, music videos, podcasts, and viral videos. REVRY connects a world of undiscovered indie-driven content to audiences hungry for stories and entertainment that’s inclusive of varied lifestyles.
At launch, REVRY features hours of Queerated entertainment, including the international award-winning, lesbian web series, Starting From...Now!, Feast of Fun’s Cooking with Drag Queens, the critically-acclaimed dramedy about living with HIV, Unsure/Positive and After Orange #ThePrisonProject, the ground-breaking new REVRY exclusive docu-series that highlights the stories of women recently released from prison and their journey to re-enter to society. The company also plans to release its first original series, “H.O.T.: House of Trans,” later this summer, which goes behind the scenes of the everyday lives of several transgendered women living in Los Angeles in pursuit of their shared goals of societal acceptance and successful careers in entertainment.
“We believe that stories have the power to change the world and with our team's diverse backgrounds in tech, digital media, and entertainment, we saw an undeniable need for REVRY in today's marketplace. This ground-breaking industry shift gives us the freedom to nurture new and innovative talent, while providing a distinctive platform for the content-hungry, LGBTQ market - an $884 BILLION dollar a year industry,” said Damian Pelliccione, CEO and founder of REVRY. "Not only are we excited to embrace the movement leading the open source world of OTT streaming apps from the old entertainment network model, we’re also excited to launch an immersive and authentic content experience for our community and beyond."
With views that have recently surpassed more than 24 million worldwide the creative team behind Starting From...Now! were among the first to join REVRY, providing all five seasons to further distribute and promote Australia’s most watched lesbian series.
"My producing partner, Rosie Lourde, and I had no hesitation in having Starting From...Now! on REVRY. It’s extremely important for us to continue to expand the show’s reach to new audiences, but also that queer stories are told and are readily available to the community. The team’s passion both for digital media, queer content and the LGBTQI community were clear from our first meeting," said Julie Kalceff - writer, director, producer.
REVRY premiered its revolutionary new service in early May during OUT Web Fest, Hollywood's first LGBTQ web festival, based on the shared goal of providing platforms that highlight the best content from contemporary, indie queer and allied creators.
