Liquid Media Group and Insight TV, a subscription service specializing in action sports and lifestyle content, expanded today their content distribution agreement. Insight TV will carry 50+ titles from Slipstream, Liquid Media’s subscription service, on its platform.
The companies didn’t specify which titles the deal encompasses, but Liquid Media CEO Ron Thomson said in a statement the partnership has “unlocked a significant global opportunity to expand the streaming footprint for select Liquid library content across an impressive worldwide distribution network.”
Insight TV touts itself as a “global millennial and youth targeted” media company with 4K UHD capabilities. Its content is available across both local broadcast and Insight’s digital channels in 53 countries. Insight TV offers monthly and annual subscription options – for $4.99 per month or $24.99 per year.
“By adding 50+ more captivating titles from our content library to Insight in the near term, we are aiming to further boost both reach and revenue for independent content creators and for Liquid,” said Thomson.
The deal is part of a growing trend to include sports content – particularly extreme sports – into streaming services. Sports-focused streaming service Dazn recently inked a deal with Red Bull Media House to launch Dazn’s first linear channel. Red Bull TV showcases events like mountain bike competitions, World Rally Championship races and other extreme sports.
Slipstream is part of Liquid Media’s Projektor online content marketplace, which gives filmmakers hands-on control in monetizing and distributing content. Aside from Slipstream, Liquid Media also owns IndieFlix, a subscription service featuring educational entertainment programming.
