Defy Media Launches Subscription Streaming Service

ScreenJunkies Plus to offer original programming including new series “Interns of F.I.E.L.D”

Defy Media and Screen Junkies are launching a subscription streaming service, the company announced Tuesday.

The company is launching Screen Junkies Plus, from the guys who make Honest Trailers, Movie Fights!, and ScreenJunkies Show. The new service, which launches Nov. 17, will offer an extensive slate of new programming scheduled seven days per week and available exclusively to SJ+ members.

SJ+ will also debut ScreenJunkies’ first scripted original series “Interns of F.I.E.L.D,” a comedy about the overworked, underpaid interns behind the scenes at the world’s most elite secret super hero organization. The show premieres on the service in December and will feature appearances from Jamie Kennedy, Jonathan Lipnicki, and Casper Van Dien.

“The existing breadth and passion of the ScreenJunkies audience showed us there is a massive opportunity related to providing great content for movie and TV fans,” Keith Richman, President of DEFY Media, said in a statement. “We launched ScreenJunkies Plus in order to fuel our ability to satisfy this audience and to further invest in programming that meets their broad spectrum of interests. We believe that the combination of our existing scale, additional programming and multi-platform distribution positions us to become the go to network for this genre.”

ScreenJunkies Plus will be available on web and mobile apps for $4.99/month. Both will offer a free trial at sign up. ScreenJunkies.com offers the option to purchase an annual subscription for the online service at $59 and a special Founders Club pack will also be available for $99, which includes a one-year subscription with one-year free, a Movie Fights home game, and swag.
