Lionsgate, Tribeca partner on OTT service
| 21 October 2014
In the latest move by mainstream media to enter the over-the-top (OTT) market, Lionsgate and Tribeca Enterprises have teamed to develop a service to launch in the first half of calendar 2015.
The service, called Tribeca Short List, will encompass Lionsgate and Tribeca titles as well as critically-acclaimed films drawn from around the world. The films will be curated by Tribeca.
"The launch of the Tribeca Short List service unites two powerful brands and underscores our commitment to collaborate with blue-chip partners around the world to deliver premium content to online audiences," said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer. "The Tribeca name resonates with movie aficionados everywhere, and our service will encompass a highly curated, diverse and prestigious portfolio of quality films."
Jane Rosenthal, CEO of Tribeca Enterprises, added, "We are pleased to join with Lionsgate, a world-class brand synonymous with innovation and exciting, quality entertainment, to create a highly curated experience that disrupts the 'more-is-more' model in today's streaming on-demand landscape. Tribeca Short List aims to be a service where you can see films you never got to watch, forgot to watch and want to watch."
