SPI International recently expanded its fast channel catalog reach with its Docustream launch on IMDb TV in the UK. The channel's new establishment in the region was derived from a set of key alliances.
Recently launched in the US, India and the Netherlands earlier this year, Docustream will now be accessible to the Amazon’s free ad-supported streaming service viewers. "Though Docustream’s entry into the international market is relatively recent, we are excited to see such high demand from content aggregators worldwide for our ad-based digital channel that brings together an incomparable selection of documentaries,” said Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe & Africa at SPI International.
IMDb TV launched three years ago in the US as a free service supported by advertising. Now, the streamer is available to both Amazon Prime members and non-members through the Prime Video app and as a standalone app on Fire TV in the UK. “Following the success of Filmstream, and with our programming expertise in the genre, we wanted to expand our FAST channel portfolio and believe Docustream is a great addition to IMDb TV, which now offers live linear channels in the UK,” added Twiss.
Docustream is an ad-supported digital channel that presents a rich collection of award-winning documentaries and TV programming exploring the mysteries and beauty of our planet. Highlights for the month of November include Khufu Revealed, a documentary that takes the viewers on a journey to the past that uncovers mysteries surrounding ancient Egyptians; Passport to Explore, an educational travel adventure series targeted at a youn audience, showcasing the underwater wonders of underwater inhabitants.
