New subscription-based digital service Premo, set to launch in February, has signed content partnership deals with Gravitas Ventures, Oscilloscope and Cinedigm as it plans to become a major source for digital entertainment aimed at multicultural millenial viewers. The service will stream content on multiple platforms from independent and influential voices including feature films from major, as well as short-form programming from digital content producers serving millennial audiences.
At launch, Premo will stream Gravitas Ventures’ Scrapper, Cinedigm’s music documentary A Band Called Death, and Oscilloscope’s 2012 Slamdance winner Welcome to Pine Hill. Other films to be available at launch include the documentary Can You Dig This, the 2014 Sundance pic Ping Pong Summer, the drama Monogamy starring Rashida Jones and Chris Messina, Pussy Riot, the Sundance doc about the Russian musical activists, and the drama In Our Nature starring Gabrielle Union. Premo is also developing original content that will included scripted comedies and non scripted programming covering art, culture and other lifestyle categories.
The Premo app will be available on mobile devices including tablets, on the web, and for set-top boxes and gaming consoles. An official launch announcement is planned in for the coming weeks.
