October 14, 2013

Viewster has announced a number of fresh content deals to bring to broaden its library as it continues to grow into one of the world’s most popular and content-rich ad-supported VoD services.

“We are in a transition from a broad library toward top international series that we are making available free and ad-supported. Our young audience just loves discovering international series with us,” said Kai Henniges, Viewster CEO. “There are fantastic formats out there, often the original version that is re-made in the US. We find these formats and make them available in markets that would otherwise not see them.”
Content in the deal includes:

-110 Hours from six different BBC series available to American viewers, including popular and critical hits like That Mitchell and Webb Look, Merlin and Pulling from FremantleMedia.
– Exclusive series provided by Content Television, a division of Content Media for the UK, Germany and other European countries.
-130 hours and 18 titles of Japanese Anime from FUNimation, including fan favorites Girls Bravo and Deadman Wonderland.
– Hundreds of hours of series programming from Starz Digital Media, Shine Group, Dori Media Group and ALL3MEDIA now live on Viewster.
