Cinedigm and The WHAM Network have formed a partnership to launch The WHAM Network, a 24/7 streaming channel providing news, information and entertainment focused on the global eSports and Gaming lifestyle. The companies will jointly operate and market the channel, which will be available across all major connected mobile devices, gaming consoles, and set top boxes. Additionally, the companies are in talks with additional platforms, skinny bundle providers, and cable operators in order to make the channel broadly available on all modes of distribution. The channel is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2017.
“WHAM is extremely excited to launch this Gaming lifestyle and culture channel,” says WHAM Founder/CEO Gary Kleinman. “We couldn’t be happier than to work with the exceptional team at Cinedigm, an organisation that has tremendous experience in all avenues of content distribution on a global basis.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Gary and the rest of the top-notch team at WHAM to bring this very timely streaming channel to audiences worldwide,” said Chris McGurk, Cinedigm’s Chairman and CEO. “Given the huge global market and fast growing consumer obsession with eSports and gaming, we fully expect this channel to resonate with audiences and provide a tremendous growth opportunity.”
