'Dennis the Menace,' 'The Dick Van Dyke Show,' more now streaming on Shout! Factory TV
Shout! Factory TV has launched its own free streaming service with access to a range of classic movies and TV series such as Dennis the Menace, Death of a Salesman, and The Dick Van Dyke Show.
The service—available online, on smart phones, and through Roku—has more than 1,000 titles available, with additional titles continuing to be added.
“We’re finding that the popular digital distributors out there are taking less library content, less classic content, less cult-y, under-the-radar content. And that’s where we specialize,” Shout co-founder, Garson Foos, told Vox. “We think we have an opportunity in the niches, for the rabid fans.”
According to Vox, much of the content available on the site can also be found on Hulu. Shout Factory’s Vice President of Digital, Gene Pao, told Vox the companies have a long history of deals to share ad revenue.
Shout! Factory TV also features original specials and live-streaming events like the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon.
