LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced that the Company has partnered with Littlstar, one of the fastest-growing and most popular streaming services, to distribute Cinedigm's portfolio of linear and video-on-demand channels. Littlstar is the leading provider of premium streaming film & television content to the gaming ecosystem, where it reaches over 100 million Sony PlayStation consoles, and also reaches hundreds of millions of additional streaming devices including Android TVs, mobile devices, and many more.
Already in business with some of the top content suppliers in the world, Littlstar currently works with Discovery, Viacom, Showtime, and Universal and is financially backed by A&E, Sony, Michael Eisner, WWE, Warner Bros. and others.
"Littlstar is ecstatic to partner with Cinedigm to bring their incredible content library and streaming channels to our free and subscription apps across hundreds of millions of Sony PlayStations, Android TVs, mobile devices, and beyond," said Tony Mugavero, Co-founder and CEO of Littlstar. “Cinedigm is on the pulse of what next generation viewers want, and we're looking forward to innovating together with them to bring cutting edge content to new audiences.”
“Cinedigm has put together an incredible premium mix of content and streaming channels that fit perfectly with Littlstar’s young, global and diverse audience,” said Matt Collado, Co-founder and Chief Content Officer of Littlstar. “Cinedigm’s collection of the best in gaming, sports/esports, comedy and anime works incredibly well both domestically and internationally and we’re excited to push the envelope with them to new audiences.”
“On the distribution front, our goal is to partner with companies that can help us reach new, highly engaged audiences,” said Erick Opeka, President of Cinedigm Networks. “Littlstar helps us reach the hundreds of millions of global viewers that use their gaming consoles to stream entertainment, on top of widespread footprint on mobile and connected televisions. With the power of Littlstar behind us, Cinedigm will now reach more than three quarters of a billion devices globally.”
“Cinedigm continues to focus on bringing well-established brands and film & television content from leading content owners into the rapidly growing free ad-supported television marketplace,” said Tony Huidor, Cinedigm’s General Manager of Digital Networks. “Consumer interest in premium content remains extremely strong within the OTT ad-supported space as traditional cable and satellite services continue to lose subscribers seeking low-cost alternatives and new and better options for their entertainment needs. That’s what Cinedigm and Littlstar are delivering now.”
