"Haunted Gold Rush"
International producer, distributor and channel operator Blue Ant Media announced the launch of its free, ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) channel HauntTV on Vizio WatchFree+ in the United States. The channel’s extensive library of paranormal-themed programming is now available to Vizio’s audiences beginning this month.
Additionally, Vizio will premiere two exclusive original series from Blue Ant Media during its Fall Fest line-up: “Haunted Gold Rush” (2x60’), Blue Ant Media’s first-ever original FAST-first docuseries which explores the ghostly mysteries along an historic Gold Rush Trail in British Columbia; and “Hotel Paranormal” (season 2), which ramps up the scares with more real-life stories of otherworldly run-ins at hotels. Following the Fall Fest premiere on Vizio, these series will appear on the HauntTV channel, with “Haunted Gold Rush” premiering on October 27 and the second season of “Hotel Paranormal” on October 28.
“October is perfect timing for Vizio to bring HauntTV’s exclusive line-up of paranormal and ghostly programming to its audiences, just ahead of Halloween. Vizio has been a key collaborator and we’re excited to celebrate HauntTV’s launch on the platform and to have Vizio premiere two Blue Ant Media original productions, including our first-ever original to premiere globally on a FAST platform,” said Jamie Schouela, President, Global Channels & Media at Blue Ant Media.
"Our continued mission is to provide our users with the content they crave and the data shows that Fall is primetime for viewing paranormal content for our users. We are pleased that we can provide these exclusive releases on WatchFree+ for our users, while expanding our collaboration with Blue Ant Media," commented Greg Barnard, Director of Content Acquisition at Vizio.
