For the first time ever, UK horror fans will soon be able to enjoy a wide variety of horror films, from cult favourites to new releases, via VOD platform TheHorrorShow.TV’s brand new subscription service, which goes live at midnight on Thursday, November 6th.
Since its launch in June 2013, TheHorrorShow.TV has been offering transactional Video on Demand (TVOD) on a growing catalogue of British, US and international horror films spanning some 60 years and a wide range of distribution partners. On Halloween, the digital platform added its 230th film, quickly followed by the launch of its brand new subscription service, which offers many of its most popular films on a subscription basis, for an introductory price of £2.99 per month (normal cost will be £4.99). It’s a bold new venture for the growing VOD platform, the UK’s only dedicated VOD destination, “curated by horror fans, created for horror fans.”
“Ever since we launched the transactional service back in 2013, the subscription (SVOD) offering has always been the ultimate goal,” says David Hughes, co-founder and curator of TheHorrorShow.TV, “and we’re delighted that many of our distribution partners have cemented their partnership with us on this exciting new venture, an ‘all you can eat’ model which will run alongside our existing ‘pay as you go’ service.” “The initial offering is modest,” adds Hughes’ partner Jack Bowyer, “but we’ll be adding to it on an almost daily basis as new deals are signed. We wanted to give early adopters, as well as our existing customer base, the chance to come aboard as quickly as possible, so they can start streaming a wide variety of films for the equivalent cost of a single monthly rental, without losing the ‘pay-as-you-go’ functionality of the rental and download options.”
