ROW8 is a U.S.-based multi-platform streaming movie service provider, which as announced licensing deals with major Hollywood studios, including Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros., and intended to bring “exciting content” to viewers. The company says it will bring more than 500 top titles to the platform, including Bumblebee, What Men Want, Ghostbusters (2016), The Equalizer, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and The Fate of the Furious.
The platform does not require contracts or long-term financial commitments, making it a more flexible option for some viewers. ROW8 offers customers a chance to stream new movies, some of which are not yet available on existing subscription services, and the VOD platform includes a “Movie Love Guarantee”, a customer satisfaction offering if an initial choice of film is not up to scratch.
“As the number of subscriptions services continue to grow, our research shows that many movie lovers are increasingly looking for more simplified movies-only VOD services without a subscription. And, the innovative ROW8 Movie Love Guarantee means they will love their movie choice, or they can swap for another one,” said ROW8 CEO John Calkins. “The deals with these top Hollywood studios are a first step to providing film fans with more ways to stream fresh movies, available in a curated, easy to use interface.”
The company also claims it has gained traction by bringing on board international and indie films, and decisions are made with the “…movie lover in mind” as it continues to make its “first in the market” deals with studios. ROW8 content can be viewed via web, iOS, Android, Roku and Samsung. For more information, click here.
