On Thursday, Brightcove added FrightPix as a new media customer. FrightPix launches on June 15 across the United States, and will use Brightcove, the world’s most trusted streaming technology company, and its award-winning platform to distribute the content.

FrightPix is a free, ad-supported video-on-demand service (AVOD) emphasizing horror, thrillers, and true crime. The new service will feature content from the three genres, combining modern thrillers and classic scares with true crime tales and original programming. FrightPix will be the next go-to stop for fans of these three genres.

“As the streaming market evolves, viewers are demonstrating a clear desire for more tailored experiences. At Brightcove, we deeply believe regional, targeted-audience and genre-focused streaming services have enormous opportunities to be successful by delivering unique viewing experiences serving their specific audience’s needs,” said Marc DeBevoise, CEO of Brightcove. “We are committed to transforming the way consumers experience content, and as the backbone technology for FrightPix, we’re supporting them in taking the lead in delivering horror fans an incredible entertainment experience and destination.”
