Cineverse’s Midnight Pulp is now available on Amazon’s Prime Video Channels, The Roku Channel and Comcast’s Xfinity platforms as an optional add-on. This marks the first time that the streaming service has been made available on a third-party platform.
While Midnight Pulp won’t be for everyone, its library is likely to appeal to those looking for cult movies and shows unavailable on other streaming services. In Cineverse’s own words, expect “blood-soaked bikinis, bone-breaking action, kung fu killers and pure, unadulterated cheese.”
With Midnight Pulp available through these third-party platforms for the first time, Amazon Prime Video Channels, Comcast Xfinity, and The Roku Channel users in the U.S. now have the option of signing up and checking the service out for themselves.
Regardless of which platform is used, the cost of a Midnight Pulp subscription is $4.99 a month, following an initial 7-day free trial.
According to Matthew Kiernan, channel manager for Midnight Pulp at Cineverse. “The expanded distribution of Midnight Pulp will increase market penetration 20X, bringing outrageous and entertaining films and TV shows to a much larger audience at a time during which cult and genre programming is increasingly popular.“
For those without access to any of these platforms, it is also possible to subscribe to Midnight Pulp directly, and at the same $4.99 a month price. Alternatively, for those not looking to add to the growing number of subscriptions they are already paying for each month, a linear Midnight Pulp channel is available as a free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) option through a number of FAST services and providers in the United States.
Speaking of its FAST channels, Cineverse recently announced a new deal with Criterion Pictures that will see some of its free, ad-supported streaming television channels becoming available in non-theatrical markets, including universities, hospitals and cruise ships.
