Cinedigm Corp. (Nasdaq: CIDM) announced an expanded partnership with leading global company LeEco to launch two additional streaming channels. Docurama and a yet-to-be named entertainment channel currently in development will launch on LeEco in Q1 2017. Cinedigm already has two over-the-top streaming channels -- Dove Channel and CONtv– available to LeEco consumers on LeEco’s ecophones and ecotvs. In addition, select Cinedigm content is also available within LIVE, LeEco’s innovative integrated content app. The two companies continue to explore additional partnership opportunities for channels and content both domestically and overseas.

LeEco is a leading global company that provides breakthrough experiences through an open, integrated ecosystem of streaming content, enabled by its Internet and cloud platform, and a wide array of next-generation connected smart devices – including smartphones, TVs, bikes, VR and electric cars.

DOCURAMA, a documentary-focused channel, provides over 300 award-winning films and television episodes. The yet-to-be named entertainment channel will be focused on mainstream entertainment content. Both channels are expected to launch in the first quarter of 2017.

Previously announced, Cinedigm already has two channels accessible within LeEco’s ecosystem:

  • DOVE CHANNEL, which is targeted to the family audience and offers meaningful mainstream movies, independent films, documentaries and heartwarming TV series and children’s programs. All of Dove Channel’s carefully curated content reflects the time-honored standards of The Dove Foundation and its trusted Seal of Approval.
  • CONtv, which is targeted to the enormous and avid Comic Con audience, comprised largely of Millennials. The channel currently boasts 2,500 hours of original programming, curated films and TV episodes, and exclusive Comic Con panel coverage from dozens of annual nationwide conventions.

“We are very pleased to further expand this exciting partnership with LeEco,” said Erick Opeka, EVP of Digital Networks for Cinedigm. “As we launch OUR four streaming channels on their ecosystem, we also look forward to pursuing additional business opportunities with LeEco both in North America and abroad.”
