go90 Notches Warner Bros. Content DealAd-based OTT service gets access to all seasons of ‘Almost Human,’ ‘Babylon 5,’ ‘Fringe,’ others 4/03/2017 3:04 PM Eastern
go90, Verizon’s recently revamped ad-based OTT service, said it has inked a deal with Warner Bros. Entertainment that will offer all seasons of an array of series, including Almost Human, Babylon 5, Believe, Fringe, Stalker, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Veronica Mars.
go90 said the new series will become available on the service starting Tuesday (April 4).
go90 is expanding its content slate the week after it announced a retooled, redesigned platform that includes improved discovery, programming and advertising capabilities and other elements originating from Verizon Digital Entertainment Engineering & Operations, a new team that was created from Verizon’s acquisition last year of Vessel.
“To be able to bring these seven titles to our users is a great opportunity to continue to double down on a genre that’s performed well for go90 and attract users who have been demanding these series or may be discovering them for the first time,” Chip Canter, GM of Verizon Digital Entertainment, said in a statement. “This order represents our commitment to a data-driven programming strategy that marries popular traditional series with our originals and organizes them into 4-5 key audience-specific networks as a way to super serve our audiences; these series are a great fit for our go90 Saga network.”
Go90 is currently offered on the Web, at go90.com, and apps for iOS and Android mobile devices, and currently offers 30,000-plus hours of content, according to Verizon.
