VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Liquid Media Group Ltd. (the “Company,” “Liquid Media” or “Liquid”) (NASDAQ: YVR), a business solutions company empowering independent producers and content creators from inception through monetization, today announced a further expansion of the action-adventure sports content being distributed via its partnership with Insight TV (“Insight”), which reaches 400+ million households in 53 countries. Insight TV is the leading 4K-UHD millennial-focused global channel and content producer, with linear channel distribution via major pay and CTV platforms and subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) reach via services and apps including iOS and tvOS, Roku (UK, US and CA), Android and Android TV, and Amazon Fire TV (US and UK).
“Our partnership with Insight has unlocked a significant global opportunity to expand the streaming footprint for select Liquid library content across an impressive worldwide distribution network,” said Ron Thomson, CEO of Liquid Media. “With such compelling content chosen for distribution, we were excited but not at all surprised to see the analytics and SVOD revenue trending upward in the early months. By adding 50+ more captivating titles from our content library to Insight in the near term, we are aiming to further boost both reach and revenue for independent content creators and for Liquid.”
Since launching six years ago, Insight TV has expanded across four continents, delivering the company’s world-leading 4K-UHD content to a growing number of linear platform partners in the US, Europe and Asia, new branded environments in the US, and owned and partner social media channels.
“We look forward to continuing our successful distribution partnership with the passionate team at Liquid, and we’re excited to see the additional 50+ titles resonate with our millennial and Gen-Z audiences,” said Graeme Stanley, Chief Commercial Officer, Insight TV.
The action-adventure sports titles selected for distribution under the Insight partnership are from Slipstream, Liquid’s curated SVOD service and part of the Company’s Projektor online content marketplace, with a global reach of over 1-billion viewers.
“We expect Liquid’s distribution reach and influence to continue growing at an accelerated rate,” added Thomson. “This would inject even greater value into our four-stage solution engine, which independent creators are leveraging to drive towards full monetization of their productions.”
