Cinedigm launches CONtv Anime, AVOD Network broadcasts Japanese animated movies and TV series – The Streamable
Cinedigm is capitalizing on the popularity of the anime.
Today, he launched CONtv Anime, a 24/7 AVOD network that broadcasts Japanese animated films and TV series. It’s available on various platforms including Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, iOS Android, and Vizio, as well as smart TV brands.
“Bubblegum Crisis”, “Vampire Princess Miyu” and “AD Police” are among his popular titles.
The new streamer expands flagship CONtv, which claims to be one of the largest digital comic book destinations, home to over 10,000 titles, such as “Star Trek” and “Judge Dredd”.
To strengthen its strength, Cinedigm will also rename Viewster, the AVOD it acquired in 2019, to CONtv Anime in the coming weeks. The move provides additional visibility from TV and connected devices including Philips, TCL, Vizio, LG, Sharp, Magnavox, Sony, Hisense and Vestel. The company estimates that CONtv Anime will now reach 295 million devices worldwide.
Cinedigm has a library of over 30,000 movies and episodes, spanning genres ranging from documentaries to fantasy adventures.
According to the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation, the global anime market is over $ 19 billion annually, said Erick Opeka, president of Cinedigm Networks. “Our goal is to provide consumers with an incredible, 100% free, fan-curated channel, deeply integrated with their favorite devices around the world. “
Cinedigm operates a variety of digitally-focused networks under its Digital Networks Group banner, including martial arts channel Combat GO, documentary network Docurama, family channels Dove and Dove Kids, the Millennium Women-focused Network Gatherer, and the Asian pop culture channel, Hallypop.
Still on the anime front, HBO Max debuted with 21 Japanese animated titles from Studio Ghibli. Founded in 1984 by directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata and producer Toshio Suzuki, its library is critically acclaimed and beloved by fans.
The most established Crunchyroll reports 60 million users worldwide and 2 million paying subscribers. At the end of February, the anime brand announced eight new series covering the adventure-fantasy-historical fiction genres.
Crunchyroll debuted in 2006 as an online streamer for American anime and manga fans. It is a subsidiary of Warner Media, the parent company of Otter Media, which invested heavily in the company in 2015.
