Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment and AMC Team Up For 12 New FAST Channels
Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment (NASDAQ: CSSE) today announced it has signed a deal with AMC Networks (Nasdaq: AMCX) to add 12 Free Ad-Supported Streaming Television (FAST) channels. The Walking Dead Universe, a post-apocalyptic horror drama, Portlandia, a sketch comedy series, and MSG SportsZone, a channel dedicated to sports fans, are just a few of the new channels available. The Redbox app on Roku streaming players, Samsung smart TVs, and many other devices will soon provide access to the channels.
Redbox’s free live TV service is rapidly approaching 200 channels, up from 180 just this past winter. Fremantle Media channels, such as The Jamie Oliver Channel and Supermarket Sweep, are among the new additions the company has made.
Quote from Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment’s Laura Florence
“The Walking Dead and Portlandia are some of AMC Networks’ most iconic series, and the ability for our consumers to watch them 24 hours a day will be an immediate hit,” said Laura Florence, senior vice president and general manager of digital for Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment. “Our Redbox Free Live TV app continues to scale with brands and series our viewers know and love. We should quickly reach 200 channels by summer and have plans to scale even further later this year.”
