AVoD service DistroTV is now home to more than 150 live streaming channels, which it says marks the network’s emergence as the largest, independent, free, ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) platform on the market.
DistroTV operates under parent company DistroScale and caters its growing, multicultural content line-up to a diverse range of viewers in the UK, US and Canada.
“We are proud to emerge as the largest, independent provider of free, ad-supported streaming content to our growing and diverse viewer audience,” declared Navdeep Saini, founder and CEO of DistroScale, parent company to DistroTV. “As an emerging FAST network and one of the few remaining independent streaming services, our mission remains to cultivate content that covers a broad spectrum of diverse topics that will spark our viewers’ unique passions and interests.”
DistroTV provides brands an opportunity to build a direct-to-consumer relationship with DistroScale and its network partners. Since its launch in 2019, DistroTV has seen rapid growth concerning its breadth of content and global audience figures. In the last six months, viewership quadrupled and total watch time multiplied eight times over. The streaming platform focuses on building a robust network that delivers news, entertainment, music, sports, and lifestyle programming to audiences globally.
DistroTV has built what it says is a strong programming line-up of popular film and television channels, including Reelz, Law&Crime, Quello, Magellan TV, People TV, and TD Ameritrade, among others. Additional independent channels include Kweli TV, which spotlights the rich history and global diversity of the Black community; Canela TV, featuring Spanish programming; Latido Music, the leading channel for Latin music; BritAsia Live for British Asians around the globe; Filmeraa, short-form movies and television in Indian and Korean; Venus TV, which features popular Bollywood movies, culture, and more.
“Over the past decade, Brit Asia TV has become the leading voice for British Asians in the UK but we know that there is a high demand for our programming outside of the country,” commented Tony Shergill, CEO, Brit Asia TV. “With DistroTV, we’re reaching a wider audience in the US and Canada and creating excitement for our programming with new audiences, which is an important part of our growth strategy.”
