Rotten Tomatoes continues its quest for become something much bigger as its Tomatometer movie and TV ranking scores. From a report: The website – owned by NBCUniversal’s Fandango – is expanding its entertainment footprint with the launch of The Rotten Tomatoes Channel, a new over-the-top streaming service that will debut on The Roku Channel. The OTT service will next come on Comcast-owned NBCU and Xumo’s Peacock platform, with other distribution agreements underway, including with pay-TV providers on the Internet, according to Fandango. Rotten Tomatoes’ first 24-hour linear video channel will loop approximately 100 hours of 24-hour premium programming on the channel, drawn from RT’s stable or original shows.
With the launch of The Rotten Tomatoes Channel, Fandango wants to expand its audience reach and provide new entry points throughout the Fandango ecosystem (i.e. to push movie tickets and sales or rentals digital). Some of the shows on The Rotten Tomatoes Channel will include “Countdown,” a show discussing the best upcoming movies and shows according to the Tomatometer and panelists; “The Vault,” a nostalgic throwback to celebrity interviews, red carpet talks, games and more from the Rotten Tomatoes archives; “Trailers Reloaded”, recapping the biggest movies and shows with a huge collection of trailers; and “Rotten Tomatoes Essentials,” a look back at the movies, shows, stars and directors who defined genres and eras.
