Cinedigm to acquire OTT VOD service Viewster
Cinedigm announced the agreement to acquire the global OTT VOD service Viewster and its subsidiary platform Viewster Anime, in an important move that further bolsters the company's already-extensive OTT content portfolio while adding an established and well-known property with trademarks in more than 30 countries around the world. Viewster and Viewster Anime's roster of fandom offerings will be immediately combined into Cinedigm's library of channels and content, with the company taking over operation of all content, applications, and social assets belonging to both platforms. Ad sales will be handled in-house and through Cinedigm's network of partners. Cinedigm expects the acquisition to be consummated in January 2019.
