AMC Networks' OTT Platforms to Serve New Zealand and Australia

The sister over-the-top (OTT) platforms of AMC Networks, Shudder and Sundance Now, are expected to launch in New Zealand and Australia at the culmination of this year.

Streaming enthusiasts from the two countries will discover new and exciting content offerings from the vast library of the two American streaming platforms.

Sundance Now currently features a long line of content from diverse genres. “Riviera” is a British TV drama by Academy Award-winning director Neil Jordan.

The Australian series, “Dead Lucky,” is a crime thriller drama also on Sundance Now’s list of exclusive and original programming.

Australian and New Zealander streaming audiences will also delight in the foreign-language content and documentaries from the OTT platform.

New programs were recently added to Sundance Now. “This Close” is a drama-comedy featuring two deaf close friends. It will excite the viewers with the actors’ enthralling portrayals.

The riveting documentary series “Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders,” is the screen adaptation of American novelist Truman Capote’s 1965 book, “In Cold Blood: A True Account of a Multiple Murder and Its Consequences.”

“Jonestown: Terror in the Jungle” is a documentary series produced by Appian Way Productions. Hollywood A-lister, Leonardo DiCaprio established this movie production firm.

Sundance Now also has its first podcast available entitled, “Exeter,” an original scripted crime series.

Streaming fans of horror, thriller, and suspense in New Zealand and Australia should prepare to get goosebumps with the offerings of the streaming platform, Shudder.

Paul Rehrig, the AMC Networks’ business development executive vice-president, remarked that the on-going growth of Sundance Now and Shudder reflects the prosperity of the New York City-based entertainment organization in terms of providing unique, original, and exclusive programs.

He said that AMC Networks continues to give exceptional viewing experience to their audiences as well. Rehrig is excited to bring Shudder and Sundance Now in Australia and New Zealand as more viewers anticipate the specialized content they are offering.

Sundance Now is a streaming service that was launched in 2014. It fulfills the mission of the Sundance Film Festival, the largest festival of independent movies, to the home audiences.

Held yearly at Utah’s Salt Lake City and Park City as well as at the Sundance Resort, the Sundance Film Festival is an important event for independent filmmakers.

This event showcases new creations from American and overseas content makers which comprise documentaries, dramas, and other short and feature films.

Sundance Now is available as an Amazon Video add-on and as an application. It is available to stream on the Internet and different media players like Chromecast and Roku.

Shudder, on the other hand, is the largest OTT video-on-demand service that presents supernatural, horror, and thriller content.

The OTT platform is advertisement-free and features uncut scenes on its content selections. AMC Networks owns and operates Shudder which is available on various preferred devices of streaming fans.

The two OTT platforms are already serving the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Austria, Ireland, and Germany.
