Cinedigm and The Dove Foundation Partner to Launch Dove Movie ChannelTM, an Over-the-Top Digital Subscription Streaming Service

Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today it has partnered with The Dove Foundation, known for its signature blue and white Dove Seal of approval on family-friendly movies, to launch a direct-to-consumer over-the-top (OTT) digital streaming subscription service targeted to families and kids seeking high quality and family friendly content approved by Dove. The announcement was made today by Cinedigm Chairman and CEO Chris McGurk and Dove Foundation co-founder and CEO Dick Rolfe.

Dove Movie ChannelTM streaming service will feature Cinedigm’s vast library of family-friendly, faith-based and kids’ content, as well as acquired content and original programming. Today, millions of families rely on The Dove Foundation’s ratings system, which has the participation of all major studios and hundreds of independent distributors and producers. Dove’s research has shown that its endorsed films are three times more profitable than non-endorsed films. All content released on the channel will meet the stringent guidelines of the Dove Seal in order to be programmed on the service.

“Once entertainment content shifted to digital platforms, we began seeking a partner to provide instant access to Dove-approved faith and family movies and television series,” said Dove's Dick Rolfe. “Cinedigm is the ideal partner, perfectly suited to provide a robust inventory of Dove-approved content coupled with the latest digital technology available on multiple platforms.”

“We are excited to partner with The Dove Foundation to meet the acute need for an over the top subscription service providing pre-screened, curated and wholesome family-friendly content,” said Cinedigm's Chris McGurk. “The Dove Foundation offers families the highest degree of confidence that they will be viewing only appropriate entertainment from a source they can trust.”
