Lionsgate, Tribeca on Short List With Digital SVOD Service

Jumping into the digital subscription space, Lionsgate and Tribeca Enterprises are teaming on a new video-on-demand service that is slated to bow in the first half of next year. 

When it bows in 2015, the companies said Tribeca Short List will showcase content from both companies’ libraries and films from around the world.

Pricing was not disclosed. The service's board of directors will be made up of executives from Lionsgate and Tribeca, both the partners have yet to announce the executive who will have daily oversight for the service.

The annoucement follows last week's the bow of CBS All Access, which makes the network's primetime fare available the day after their broadcast bow, as well as an expansive library of series, and HBO's 2015 play to launch a stand-alone subscription service that will be available to customers outside of its traditional pay-TV ecosystem.

“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 CEO 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.”

“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 Tribeca CEO Jane Rosenthal. “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.”
