CultOfConsume – TheHorrorShow Launches Streaming Service
With the growing success of Netflix and Hulu, it seems more and more services are going online and it seems the horror fans aren’t to be left out…
In a bit of news aside from our usual CultOfConsume round-ups, The Horror Show are going all streamy! Having been in the VOD market for the last year or so, they are launching a streaming service at midnight tonight!
“Ever since we launched the transactional service back in 2013, the subscription offering has always been the ultimate goal,” says David Hughes, co-founder and curator of TheHorrorShow.TV, “and we’re delighted that many of our distribution partners have cemented their partnership with us on this exciting new venture, an ‘all you can eat’ model which will run alongside our existing ‘pay as you go’ service.” “The initial offering is modest,” adds Hughes’ partner Jack Bowyer, “but we’ll be adding to it on an almost daily basis as new deals are signed. We wanted to give early adopters, as well as our existing customer base, the chance to come aboard as quickly as possible, so they can start streaming a wide variety of films for the equivalent cost of a single monthly rental, without losing the ‘pay-as-you-go’ functionality of the rental and download options.”
Short of a return to the halcyon days of VHS, I’m all for more films being offered for streaming and it’s going to be interesting to see if a genre service like this can make it in the wider world of online video.
TheHorrorShow.TV‘s brand new subscription service goes live at midnight on Thursday, November 6th and will cost £2.99 per month.
