Entertainment television service Xumo is hoping that you’re ready for another free genre-specific streaming channel, this one, called Unidentified, is for paranormal, conspiracy theorists, and sci-fi fans.
The channel will feature all things strange and bizarre including documentaries and indie films under the 1091 Media banner.
1091 Media, formerly The Orchard, has titles that include What We Do in the Shadows, Bob Lazar and Area 51, Unacknowledged, Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind, and The Phenomenon.
Free streaming services are becoming more and more popular among viewers looking for content beyond the cable box.
Pluto TV, Tubi, Crackle and Xumo have seen an upswing in popularity since the COVID-19 pandemic has left people housebound.
“Launching Unidentified is a natural evolution for 1091,” COO Adam Brostoff said, “bringing the best content to audiences throughout the world, and showcasing our roster of filmmakers, series producers and content creators who have a passion for paranormal and all things unknown.”
Xumo’s VP of Content Partnerships and Programming, Anthony Layser is certain the channel will, “draw in large audiences with its unprecedented range of compelling paranormal, alien and conspiracy-related content. With partners like 1091, XUMO continues to provide widely appealing new channels, like this one, that feature best-in-category programming.”
