Freevee is adding a new music and pop culture channel building on one of the most recognizable brands in entertainment.
SPIN Magazine, the editorial music tastemaker brand, and Best Ever Channels (BEC), a leading digital syndication studio and developer of original streaming programming have announced the launch of a new SPIN music free ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channel, debuting March 21. The new channel launch will include a countdown and celebratory party, hosted by SPIN at one of the music industry’s largest annual music festivals in Austin, Texas.
SPIN builds on the iconic music brand’s legacy, with a 24/7 streaming lineup of unparalleled SPIN original programming, documentaries, interviews, behind-the-scenes specials, exclusive artist showcases, and unique curated music video playlists.
The exclusive launch on Amazon Freevee will kick off with a special free preview and music celebration on March 16 in Austin. The launch event, hosted by SPIN, will feature performances by, among others, Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam’s side project Painted Shield and headliner Killer Mike of the award-winning hip-hop duo Run the Jewels.
“The brand integrity of SPIN has always been paramount to every decision we make,” says SPIN CEO Jimmy Hutchinson. “Amazon’s Freevee is arguably one of the biggest platforms out there, with over 150 million potential viewers and we believe partnering with Best Ever Channels and Freevee is the best way to deliver on our brand promise to music fans everywhere.”
“SPIN is one of the most recognized and respected music brands in the world, so it only makes sense to launch our new channel on the biggest stage in streaming,” says BEC Co-Chief Executive Officer Barry Gordon. “Our partners at Amazon Freevee understand the power of the SPIN brand, and together we’ll reach a massive audience of fans hungry to connect with their favorite artists and the most authentic voice in music editorial.”
BEC’s growing lineup of FAST offerings includes its recently launched comedy channel, WITZ-Comedy TV; health, wealth, and wisdom channels MOREU, COMMUNE, and CINEMA LIBRE; cult film and television fan favorites ACTION!!! And Trailers from Hell; Carl Jackson-produced The GRID and CJC channels; and classic film and television channel Best TV Ever.
