Cinedigm to Bring Comic Con Channel to OwnZones

Broadcasting & Cable has reported that Cinedigm, an independent content distributor, will offer a version of CONTV, a service devoted to the comic book universe, as a streaming channel on OwnZones.com.

Cinedigm claims a library of more than 52,000 films and TV episodes, consisting of documentaries, independent movies and festival picks through the Sundance Institute and Tribeca Films. Cinedigm also has programming from National Geographic, Discovery, Scholastic, NFL, Shout Factory, Hallmark Channel, Jim Henson and other television networks. It makes that content available to viewers over iTunes, Netflix and Amazon, among other digital outlets.

OwnZones is an ad-free, subscription-based service that allows consumers to find, view, collect and subscribe to video content online, on hand-held devices and on flat screen TV sets using Google Chromecast. In addition to entertainment, OwnZones offers ‘how-to’ programming in such categories as dancing, fitness and cooking. Viewers can subscribe to channels individually or in “bundles.”

The deal makes Cinedigm among the first channel providers for the OwnZones content delivery service, according to Broadcasting & Cable. Last week, Cinedigm’s Dove Channel announced it had tapped Rakuten Marketing to create a national affiliate program targeting mommy and faith-based outlets. Dove Channel’s goal is to grow its “family friendly” streaming service by running ads over a network of targeted online publications.
