LOS ANGELES, Dec. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) has partnered with Samsung to give viewers access to a pair of popular digital-first networks—the fandom-dedicated CONtv and the family friendly faith-based DOVE CHANNEL—available now on Samsung’s TV Plus video service.

TV Plus is Samsung’s owned and operated video service, which provides access to a variety of free streaming channels covering sports, lifestyle, and more, straight out of the box on select Samsung TVs. It does not require a subscription fee, account set-up, or credit card info to access. CONtv and the DOVE CHANNEL are currently available on 2017 and 2018 Samsung Smart TV models, and will be rolling out to more in the future.

CONtv is the leading digital-first entertainment network devoted exclusively to fandom. The network provides audiences access to thousands of hours of content showcasing an eclectic catalog of must-watch favorites featuring quintessential cult films, and classic television shows, spanning a wide array of genres including sci-fi, horror, fantasy, anime, grindhouse, and martial arts.

DOVE CHANNEL was created as a response to high consumer demand for family-friendly content, offering viewers safe programming options and full access to the largest library of high-quality values-based films, children’s programs, documentaries, and series in the streaming marketplace. Samsung viewers can feel confident knowing that all content featured on Dove Channel meets the high standards of The Dove Foundation and its esteemed Faith & Family Dove Seals Of Approval—serving as an invaluable resource for families across the country for over 27 years.
