VRV, the OTT service catering to “superfans” of anime, animation, comedy, horror, science and technology, have announced the addition and availability of content from MUBI, an OTT channel featuring top-rated classic films, and the platform availablity of the previously announced science, history, nature, and tech documentary channel CuriosityStream.
CuriosityStream is available separately in packages from $2.99 to $11.99 per month; MUBI is available separately for $5.99 per month, but both channels are available as part of VRV’s “Combo Pack,” which includes 10 other channels, for $9.99 per month.
Next TV News previously talked with VRV GM Arlen Marmel just before the addition of these two new channels.
“Several years ago we set out on a journey to build a central hub for what we at the time called the ‘fandom,’ and we recognized that there are a bunch of niche services out there, and the market is growing. Crunchyroll is one the largest anchors in that ecosystem. Can we build a hub that from a user standpoint creates a gathering place, a home for all of the brands and channels that they know and love, allows them to connect with like minded people, and a product that that by virtue of focusing on those niche fandoms allows you to build an experience that maybe caters a little more intimately to that Audience”?
VRV is available through iOS, Android, Xbox One, PS4, Roku, and Comcast apps, with Apple TV and Amazon device support coming early next year.
