FreeCast Test Markets Select TV to Eager Viewers in Australia
Partnership with Allure Media to distribute Select TV down under, already above expectations.
Just 30 days after Select TV’s official state-side launch, FreeCast is already prepping the service for international markets, starting with a trial promotion in Australia through a partnership with Allure Media. Already Aussies have embraced the service and are signing up in droves, far faster than anticipated, putting FreeCast well on its way to creating the first truly global television platform.
FreeCast CEO William Mobley discussed the excitement that the service’s international launch is generating within the company. “When we launched Select TV in the US, it created quite a buzz that we thought would be hard to top. So when we began to test market the service in Australia this week, we were pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm for it. So far we’re averaging one sale from down under every three minutes! As we roll out to new international markets, we’re on track to meet an aggressive goal of 10 million subscribers in the first year.”
As Select TV arrives in Australia, it does so with over 350,000 TV episodes, over 250,000 movies, over 1400 channels, a full calendar of live events streamed via the web, over 75,000 radio stations, music videos, games, and more, from free and paid sources in the United States, Australia, and around the world. Recently featured in Gizmodo and Lifehacker in Australia, at just $2.99 per month, the service is expected to enjoy strong sales world-wide.
