Viewster has launched over-the-top (OTT) branded channels, which will bring highly curated short-form content to its global video streaming audience.

The new content includes Mondo Media's Happy Tree Friends and Dick Figures, and additional channels featuring the bizarre and amusing facts of AllTime10s and the topical How It Should Have Ended, an on-going parody animation series that provides new endings to popular movies.

More top-performing digital-first channels from gaming, animation and entertainment will be announced in September, the company said. All channels are available free worldwide through Viewster's advertising-supported desktop, mobile and smart TV apps, with regular updates ensuring a consistent, fresh flow of content.

"Digital-first content, as we are now proud to offer in our branded channels, is an exciting window into the future of entertainment," said Azadeh Stoelken, director of content at Viewster. "We picked these amazing channels to complement our existing anime, science fiction and thriller offerings for our discerning and engaged audience."
