FreeCast’s SmartGuide is an aggregated television platform, providing on-demand and linear television that includes ad-supported, subscription, and pay-per-view content. The company’s low-cost distribution via the internet and ability to monetize content via dynamic ad-insertion (DAI) mean that even channels with smaller audiences can be commercially viable, and larger channels can find new viewers online as more watching transitions to the web.
FreeCast CEO William Mobley described the value of the new channels to the FreeCast ecosystem. “We’re excited to work with Cinedigm and add their channels to SelectTV, because that’s what this business has always been all about. We help consumers get access to channels that match their interests, and we help programmers reach audiences that are interested in their content. And we do it for both much more affordably than traditional TV networks and providers do.”
“As the television viewing audience continues to shift away from established cable and satellite providers onto OTT, it is critical that Cinedigm make it’s channels widely available. ” said Tony Huidor, Cinedigm’s General Manager of Digital Networks. “It is through the high-scalability of our Matchpoint platform and via partners, such as FreeCast, that we can ensure our viewers that they can find our content on every platform and every OTT service out there.”
