Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 24, 2005
Broadbandtv Corp., a North American leader in the aggregation, distribution and marketing of video content via Video On Demand (VOD) over Internet Protocol (IP) channels, and CineClix Distribution Inc., a global digital film distribution company focused on Independent and Festival films, have entered into a Strategic Alliance that will feature CineClix’s video content throughout the Broadbandtv network.
Under this agreement, over 80 Independent films will be added to Broadbandtv’s distribution library immediately, with more to be added over the length of the agreement. The new video titles being added to Broadbandtv’s portfolio feature a special selection of curated titles acquired by CineClix from Independent film makers, distributors and film festivals throughout the world.
The addition of CineClix’s content and Broadbandtv’s VOD over IP distribution capabilities will provide consumers a highly user friendly and efficient experience in downloading and viewing hard to find curated independent film content on their own TVs in the comfort of their homes. Broadbandtv and CineClix will share pay-per-view revenues derived from the fees paid by participating consumers. They will also collaborate on joint marketing initiatives at Film Festivals and Markets throughout the globe.
“Broadbandtv is very excited about partnering with CineClix”” said Shahrzad Rafati, President and CEO of Broadbandtv. “CineClix’s compelling selection of Independent and Festival films will be a valued addition to our distribution library and will help us drive greater bottom line benefits to our network and platform partners.”
“The technological evolution of IP as a video content delivery system is now moving very quickly” said CineClix Co-founder and COO Ingrid Morse. “This opportunity is exciting because it offers consumers direct access to our unique content, which can be conveniently pre-ordered and sent directly to their IPTV set-top boxes. Our catalogue is now available to millions of customers who prefer to watch independent films at home on their TV, but don’t have sophisticated home networks to access the growing amount of video content on the Internet.”
