FilmRise and Bell Media announce a partnership deal for a broad range of FilmRise content across multiple genres available to Canadians on Bell Media’s CTV Throwback and CTV Movies digital channels on CTV.ca and the CTV app.
The deal includes the addition of more than 1,100 hours of FilmRise’s acquired content to Bell Media. Programs include fan-favorites such as “Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen,” “Unsolved Mysteries,” “Kitchen Nightmares,” “Ex Machina,” “Boyhood,” and “Foxcatcher,”. With select titles available now, including “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “Ex Machina,” and additional content to be added over the coming months, FilmRise titles are available with no subscription or sign-in required on CTV.ca and the CTV app.
Daniel Gagliardi, VP of Digital Distribution and Business Development at FilmRise, states, “As consumer interest in AVOD continues to grow, this strategic partnership with Bell Media enables our content to gain more visibility across North America. Now, Canadian viewers will be able to watch the FilmRise programming they love for free.”
Justin Stockman, Vice-President, Content Development & Programming from Bell Media comments, “This partnership allows us to deepen our content offering on CTV Throwback and CTV Movies, delivering more titles and more choice for viewers.”
