ShortsTV has launched its linear TV channel on the Delta platform in Zeeland. The channel, which is fully localised in Dutch will be distributed in Delta’s Plus package on channel 312.
Available across the US and Europe, ShortsTV airs live action, animation and documentary short movies from the Netherlands and around the world. It also creates its own original programming.
In the Netherlands, the channel is already available in Ziggo’s Movies & Series XL package and further launches are expected in the country soon.
“With the Netherlands at the forefront of Europe’s digital revolution and ShortsTV as the leader in the hottest new movie entertainment, we are delighted to be growing our audience in the Netherlands as we launch the channel on Delta,” said Jesse Bergsma, ShortsTV EMEA President.
ShortsTV CEO Carter Pilcher, said, “Delta’s customers will have a new world of exciting entertainment to explore on ShortsTV: cutting edge short dramas, movie stars like you’ve never seen them, hair-raising films at Midnight and thought-provoking short documentaries. Not only will they see great movies, but also up-and-coming Dutch filmmakers competing to get their films made and seen around the world.”
ShortsTV is operated by Shorts International Ltd, which also produces the Oscar Nominated Short Films theatrical release and operates a short movie on-demand service available on iTunes and other online platforms.
