The two companies are partnering for an on-demand streaming platform.
Lionsgate and Tribeca Enterprises have revealed plans to launch their own subscription video on-demand service called Tribeca Short List. Aimed at delivering premium content to the online market, Tribeca Short List is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2015.
"The launch of the Tribeca Short List service unites two powerful brands and underscores our commitment to collaborate with blue-chip partners around the world to deliver premium content to online audiences," said Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer. "The Tribeca name resonates with movie aficionados everywhere, and our service will encompass a highly curated, diverse and prestigious portfolio of quality films."
While specific films have not been announced yet, the service will include select titles from Lionsgate and Tribeca, along with movies from foreign markets. Content will be specially curated by Tribeca and will be updated on a weekly basis.
"We are pleased to join with Lionsgate, a world-class brand synonymous with innovation and exciting, quality entertainment, to create a highly curated experience that disrupts the 'more-is-more' model in today's streaming on-demand landscape," said Jane Rosenthal, CEO of Tribeca Enterprises. "Tribeca Short List aims to be a service where you can see films you never got to watch, forgot to watch, and want to watch."
Pricing has not been detailed yet and it's unclear what devices the service will be available on. Tribeca Short List now joins a growing number of new and upcoming subscription on-demand platforms, including streaming services from HBO and CBS.
