Cinedigm and JungoTV have announced a partnership to launch COMBAT GO, a 24/7 mixed martial arts (MMA) free streaming channel on Twitch which will bring together top global MMA Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Muay Thai, and traditional Asian martial arts promotions. The channel is launching on April 18th and will feature HD Quality English language-based programming.
COMBAT GO is the brainchild of media executive and former Crunchyroll Chief Content Officer George Chung, who is a five-time former World Karate Champion and Inductee in the Black Belt Hall of Fame.
“The martial arts are truly an art form, transcending sports,” said Chung, JungoTV CEO. “COMBAT GO is a passionate celebration of that, showcasing top fighters, gifted up-and-comers, and the legendary masters who have helped shape the martial arts as we know them today. JungoTV is excited to join with Cinedigm in this unparalleled new venture, as we work to extend the reach of this incredible art form to viewers all across the globe.”
“There is a real lack of global combat sports among digital-first networks,” said Erick Opeka, EVP of Cinedigm Networks. “We look forward to bringing a diverse, high-quality array of top tier events to the widely-popular and growing Twitch channel as well as other platforms where fans can not only watch the content, they can engage with it and their friends. We’ve seen great success so far with the performance of our fandom-focused CONtv channel on Twitch and expect similar results with COMBAT GO.”
