Revry, which labels itself as the first-ever global queer streaming service, is launching a 24/7 linear channel on XUMO, the premier LIVE and video-on-demand (VOD) over-the-top (OTT) service.
With its addition to the platform, Revry will provide hundreds of hours of LGBTQ+ domestic and international entertainment that includes iconic, award-winning narrative and documentary films, cutting-edge series and originals along with music videos to XUMO’s viewers through Smart TV, mobile and other connected devices. The new channel (#463) is currently the first and exclusive home for queer entertainment on XUMO.
“We are excited to launch our next live linear channel on XUMO this Pride season. By the end of June, Revry’s will reach up to 70 million homes in the US and expands our opportunity to touch a broader audience through the XUMO platform,” said Damian Pelliccione, CEO and Co-Founder at Revry. “Revry will be releasing all our newest original content on our XUMO channel this summer. This includes two original TV series, six original digital series, four original films and one original short film along with ‘queerated’ selections from our current library of over five thousand hours of content representing all gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, cultures, ages, languages and walks of life.”
“We’re excited about our partnership with Revry because it means more diversity and long-form content on-demand for our growing audience,” said Stefan Van Engen, senior vice president of content partnerships & programming at XUMO. “The addition of Revry’s LGBTQ programming to XUMO’s premium channel lineup provides quality content and a curated library to our viewers on all screens in and outside of the home.”
This marks Revry’s second 24/7 linear channel. In June of last year, the company launched a channel on Pluto TV, another ad-supported OTT TV service.
