Cinedigm Adding 18,000+ Films & TV Series via Distribution Agreement with Filmhub

Marks First Major Third-Party Content Deal Since Launch of Flagship Streaming Service.

Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), a premier streaming and entertainment company super-serving enthusiast fan bases, announced today that it has begun adding more than 18,000 additional film and television episodes to Cineverse, its flagship streaming service, through an expanded distribution agreement with leading independent film distributor, Filmhub.

The deal between the two companies marks the first major third-party content transaction completed on behalf of Cineverse, which launched this past September. With plans to offer the world’s largest streaming film & television library, Cineverse will now carry more than 32,000 film and television episodes under this deal.  All of these films and a wide range of additional titles will be available at cineverse.com, as well as across iOS, Android, Roku and Samsung connected television apps.  In addition, support for Amazon Fire TV, LG webOS and Apple TV apps will be made available shortly.

Some of the films to be available on Cineverse as a result of this Filmhub deal include: An Honest Liar (2014), Rickshaw Girl (2022) Still Breathing (Brendan Fraser). These titles will also be featured across Cinedigm’s other AVOD, SVOD, and FAST streaming brands within the Company’s growing channel portfolio.

“As we recently stated after launching Cineverse, one of our primary goals is to offer consumers unlimited access to an immense diversity and range of entertainment content that consumers have been denied by other subscription-based services,” remarked Erick Opeka, Cinedigm’s President & Chief Strategy Officer.  “Our partnership with Filmhub grants us full access to a huge catalog of high-quality independent films, documentaries, television series, and short-form content from around the world allowing us to easily surpass our goal of adding more than 15,000 titles in Q1 2023.”

“It’s very exciting to partner with a similar technology-forward company in the video streaming business,” stated Alan d’Escragnolle, CEO & Co-Founder of Filmhub.  “As the world becomes more diverse in its interests and technology enables content personalization at scale, we’re excited to see our premium new releases and full content catalog find new audiences on Cineverse and across Cinedigm’s portfolio of streaming channels. This is a great win for both our distributor and individual producer clients.”

At the center of Cineverse is an initial lineup of free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) linear channels that showcase Cinedigm-owned and managed channels including AsianCrush, Bloody Disgusting, The Bob Ross Channel, The Country Channel, CONtv, CONtv Anime, Crime Hunters, Docurama, The Dove Channel, The Elvis Presley Channel, Fandor and Screambox.
