Stargate Command expands to Apple TV
VRV—a video aggregation service that offers subscribers “the best of anime, animation, gaming, fantasy, and sci-fi”—has announced a partnership with Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) to bring the Stargate franchise to Apple TV and other streaming media devices. The Stargate Command experience was made available on March 15th through VRV Select, the platform’s curated house channel.
And just what is the Stargate Command experience? For a fee of $20.00, members get unlimited access to the largest collection of Stargate content ever offered in one place: Stargate SG-1, Stargate: Universe, Stargate: Atlantis, STARGATE (the motion picture), STARGATE: THE ARK OF TRUTH, STARGATE: CONTINUUM, video extras and Stargate Origins. The All-Access fee grants members access from September 20, 2017 (the launch of Stargate Command) through May 15, 2018.
In a statement, the company said:
“Through the VRV partnership, fans will now have the opportunity to watch Stargate Command All-Access video content, including Stargate Origins, on more devices than ever before. VRV is available on the web, iOS and Android devices as well as Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, XBOX One, PS4, Chromecast and newer Roku devices. Along with Stargate Command content, users have the ability to explore and experience other fan-centric entertainment on VRV in one unified environment, with content from a large collection of premium SVOD channels including Crunchyroll, Funimation, DramaFever, Rooster Teeth, and Shudder, alongside VRV Select. VRV is available for a $9.99 monthly subscription. Stargate Command All-Access will continue to provide members a window of exclusivity for newly released content, as VRV will air episodes of Stargate Origins no earlier than 30 days after each episode appears on Stargate Command.”
VRV Select will provide the full Stargate Command experience in the U.S., housing all of the service’s premium content after a window of exclusivity on the Command platform. In other words, consider the Stargate Command content a delayed bonus to all the great entertainment options already available through VRV.
MGM will make the new feature-length cut of Stargate Origins available for sale on digital storefronts with local language versions available in select markets worldwide.
Created to provide fans with a next-gen entertainment experience, VRV offers immersive content experiences in a digitally-driven environment via bundled subscription, a la carte subscription, or ad-supported options. This includes premium SVOD channels such as Crunchyroll, Funimation, DramaFever, Rooster Teeth, and Shudder.
