Shout! Factory, a media company offering timeless and contemporary cult favorites, announced today that it will be bringing its Shout! Factory TV and Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) 24/7 live channels to the Theta Network.
By adding both its Shout! Factory TV and MST3K 24/7 live channels to the THETA.tv streaming platform, Shout! Factory joins THETA Network as it continues to enrich its content offering beyond esports into genres including classic movies from MGM Studios, live poker (World Poker Tour), breathtaking live events (NASA / first SpaceX manned launch on May 27), and live streamed virtual conferences (such as Consensus by CoinDesk, Crypto Asia Summit and Virtual Blockchain Week), with more to come down the road. Building on THETA Network’s traditional base of live esports streaming, this new content is drawing diverse audiences from around the world to watch content, share their video with other users, and earn TFUEL rewards for their network contributions.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our channel reach to the Theta audience,” said Gene Pao, Shout! Factory’s SVP Digital Enterprises. “With timeless cult programming and dedicated fan bases, Shout! Factory TV and MST3K have demonstrated immense appeal to the gaming community, giving the viewer further reason to spend more time with the platform.”
“We’re excited to add Shout! Factory content including MST3K to our growing Theta Network premium content library joining our partners MGM, WPT, NASA and others. Their classic fan favorite films and TV shows are a perfect fit for the Theta user base,” said Mitch Liu, CEO, Theta Labs. “Now, even more global viewers can enjoy Shout! Factory content 24/7 while earning TFUEL rewards – a huge step towards Theta blockchain adoption.”
