The new service makes independently produced entertainment available to a worldwide audience on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV
Online PR News – 24-June-2016 – New York City – The pioneering and successful networking business, which has helped to connect independent filmmakers with talented musicians for 15 years, is now launching its own cord cutting channels. The new stations feature some of the best independently produced films, documentaries, and music videos from VersusMedia's impressive client database.
Cord cutting is a growing trend in home entertainment whereby users cancel paid television subscriptions and leverage the benefits of high-speed internet connections to avail of cheaper web-based alternatives, such as internet television. VersusMedia is initially releasing its new channels to users of three popular media streaming devices - Roku, Amazon Fire Tv, and Android TV. The channels are available to a worldwide audience via a downloadable app and the company is planning to have Apple TV compatibility in place by Fall 2016.
Ryan Vinson, the founder of VersusMedia, is enthusiastic about the release. He has encouraged independent filmmakers and musicians to get in contact with him about having their content featured on the new channels. Ryan has always championed the value of original independent media. VersusMedia's extensive database of aspiring musicians has led to some collaborations for movies that have aired at world-renowned film festivals such as Cannes and Sundance, so viewers can be assured that the new channels are chock-full of quality entertainment.
"It seems today that the term 'independent film' is too broadly defined. The subsidiary companies of major film studios are masquerading as small studios, producing so-called 'independent films'. The end result of this is that real independent filmmakers aren't getting noticed. We are focusing on helping such artists make their content available to a worldwide audience. We're looking for additional independent films, shorts, documentaries, and music videos to add to our channel. All licenses are on a non-exclusive basis. We accept content from all genres and languages. You are welcome to contact us for more info. For people wanting to view our new channels, you can easily find the app by searching for 'VersusMedia' on your particular device."
The service provided by VersusMedia has been commended by filmmakers around the world. The company is unique in that it embraces producers of every budget, from film school students to larger independent studios. Producers who work with VersusMedia have a direct connection to a pool of talented musicians where they can seek out suitable music for their movies. Musicians have also praised the service for giving them a fantastic platform to market their talents.
The company has spent the last few months selecting the best films, documentaries, music videos and more from its extensive client database, so viewers can expect high-quality content from all over the world.
VersusMedia has been helping independent filmmakers work with musicians since 2001. To find out more about the new cord cutting channels, visit http://www.versusmedia.tv.
