VetStreamTV Launches

A new film-focused subscription streaming service has launched – targeted at US military veterans.

“As a former Marine, I really wanted to see films about my experiences and the experiences of others in the military community. I knew that other veterans and active duty military felt the same way,” stated Joe Ramirez, co-founder and CEO of VetStreamTV.

VetStreamTV’s current content includes:

  • Dramas, comedies and action-adventure films, such as Attack Force Z, starring Mel Gibson; The Rats of Tobruk, a 1944 Australian film; and shorts like Embedded, Freebird and Catch Me if U Can;
  • Documentary features like A Second Knock on the Door, about family members lost to friendly fire, and The Millionaire’s Unit, about a group of Yale students who were the first to fly for America in World War I. There are also shorts, including Day 39, about a young soldier on his first deployment in Afghanistan, who fights alongside a seasoned Ranger medic to save a young mother and her unborn child;
  • Original series, the first being On the Road to Recovery, featuring Army veteran and former substance abuser Michael DeLeon conducting candid interviews with substance abusers “from the guy next door, to celebrities, to veterans.”

Promised future programming includes “one-time events, news, talk shows, family entertainment, career assistance content, and medical information.”

The service is offering “early” subscribers a rate of $3.99 a month, or $39.99 a year. For more info, or to subscribe, visit vetstreamtv.com.
