VRV Adds DramaFever to SVOD Lineup

VRV, Ellation’s SVOD aggregation service, is expanding its content slate again, this time in the form of DramaFever, the OTT service that specializes in Korean TV shows and movies and content from other parts of the globe.

DramaFever, now a unit of Warner Bros. Digital Networks, offers shows such as Good Doctor, a South Korean medical drama that was recently adapted by David Shore for ABC, comedies that include My Secret Romance, and Running Man, a variety show.

VRV is selling DramaFever as a standalone for $4.99 per month, and in a $9.99 per month bundle that also features Cartoon Hangover, Crunchyroll, CuriosityStream, Funimation, Geek & Sundry, MONDO, Mubi, Nerdist, Rooster Teeth, Shudder, Tested, and VRV Select.

DramaFever also sells a direct-to-consumer service that starts at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year. Amazon Channels, meanwhile, sells DramaFever Instant among its dozens of SVOD services.

The addition of DramaFever continues a broadening of VRV’s content focus beyond initial areas that included anime and animation.

Last month, for example, VRV tacked on CuriosityStream, the fact-based entertainment service started up by Discovery Communications founder John Hendricks, and also added Mubi, which features cult, classic, independent and award-winning titles.

"They bring an immense amount of premium content from across the world, providing even more unique value to the VRV offering and further leveling-up our ability to serve passionate audiences."
