VRV (pronounced “verve”) is adding to its collection of content in a new deal with WarnerMedia.
Under the agreement, Ellation-owned VRV — which houses more than 10 different streaming services — will be the exclusive streaming home to Turner’s “Final Space” and “Mike Tyson’s Mysteries.” “Final Space,” which usually airs on TBS and Adult Swim, is available on the platform starting Wednesday with “Mike Tyson’s Mysteries” — one of Adult Swim’s most successful shows — following in early 2019.
The first three episodes of “Final Space” will be available for free on VRV, with additional episodes of “Mike Tyson’s Mysteries” to stream on VRV Premium, which users can subscribe to for $9.99 per month. Included in that price is access to all other OTT channels housed on the platform including: Rooster Teeth, HDIVE, Crunchyroll, Geek & Sundry, Nerdist, Cartoon Hangover, Mondo, Nicksplat, Shudder, CuriousityStream, and Turner’s Boomerang, which will be coming to the platform on Nov.13.
The addition of “Final Space” and ” Mike Tyson Mysteries” is the result of a growing bond between WarnerMedia (formerly Time Warner) and Otter Media (which owns Ellation) since AT&T took over both companies earlier this year. Last month, Ellation-owned Crunchyroll began streaming its content on Turner’s broadcast network, Adult Swim. Ellation also inked a deal with WarnerMedia that will see Warner’s Boomerang SVOD service — along with its collection of 3000+ cartoons — become available on VRV.
Since last year, VRV has more than doubled the number of registered users on its platform from 1.5 million last November to currently serving 4 million registered users — 2.5 million of which use the platform on a monthly basis. The company plans to continue this growth through international expansion, which is expected to take place next year, according to Eric Berman, VRV’s head of content partnerships.
