Cinedigm has announced the relaunch of its popular horror streaming service Screambox with a whole new look and and branding. The service, dubbed “The Perfect Horror Streaming Alternative to Netflix” by Tech Times, has migrated the channel from the former Vimeo platform to Cinedigm’s proprietary Matchpoint Blueprint framework. This means a broader selection of horror titles for fans to stream, in addition to the updated app that will give viewers the ability to stream both linear and live events.
“The acquisition of Screambox allows us to leverage our proprietary technology to better manage and operate the channel at scale,” said Tony Huidor, Cinedigm’s Chief Technology & Product Officer. “With the addition of Screambox to our channel portfolio along with our growing investments in the horror genre, we have an opportunity to reach a loyal fanbase of horror fans and solidify our position as a leader in the horror genre within the OTT space.”
This comes after Cinedigm recently acquired Bloody Disgusting. Now Screambox and Bloody Disgusting TV will allow Cinedigm to offer fans the quintessential streaming screamfest with subscription-based (SVOD), ad-supported (AVOD) and FAST linear options. In addition to streaming their favorite movie, horror fans have access to a network of podcasts as well as the ability to learn about their favorite movie or actor while interacting with fellow horror enthusiasts on the website.
