Cinedigm, a leading global FAST (Free, Ad-Supported Streaming Television) independent streaming company, has chosen Media Business Management Platform WHATS’ON by MEDIAGENIX as the content programming solution to power its growing portfolio of ad-supported FAST channels.
Cinedigm will utilize the WHATS’ON platform to manage, schedule, and optimize content programming across the Company’s growing list of FAST channels.

Cinedigm’s diverse channels offer a variety of genre programming, including independent films, horror films, anime, comedies, documentaries, reality TV, sports and more.
“MEDIAGENIX has a long track record of success in powering content workflows for both traditional broadcast & satellite/cable-based channels as well as streaming services. We look forward to utilizing their WHATS’ON platform to streamline and significantly scale our content programming workflow,” said Tony Huidor, Chief Technology & Product Officer of Cinedigm. “Specifically, we intend to leverage the WHATS’ON platform’s extensive programming capabilities to more efficiently manage and schedule our significant content portfolio and rapidly growing number of ad-supported FAST channels in a more efficient and automated manner. This is an important step in further spurring Cinedigm’s rapidly evolving FAST business, so we are excited to partner with MEDIAGENIX to help scale our FAST portfolio through their industry-leading platform WHATS’ON.”
