The launch of the Revry channels on these two providers marks another significant milestone for the queer network.

The Revry Premium SVOD product will be available on the Cox Contour and Contour Stream Player platforms.

A first for Revry, Plex will distribute multiple channels, including both Revry’s Live TV channel (streaming radically diverse movies and shows) and the Revry Now channel–the world’s first 24/7 queer news network–across its platform.  

The Revry owned and operated apps exist as an innovative “tribrid” model offering full access to its On-Demand library with a Revry Premium Subscription (SVOD), limited access to On-Demand content for free with ads (AVOD), and–as the focus of the network–an offering of multiple ad-supported live TV channels streaming “unapolegtically queer” movies, shows, music, podcasts, and originals all day, every day. These live TV channels are also syndicated to Revry’s eight third party streaming partners including: Samsung TV Plus, The Roku Channel, XUMO TV, STIRR, TiVo+, Zapping TV, Littlstar (VR), and–now introducing–Plex.

“Revry believes representation saves lives,” said Damian Pelliccione, co-founder and CEO of Revry. “We’re overjoyed to partner with such wonderful major media companies who support our mission of bringing radically inclusive content to their mainstream audiences.”

As the first queer global streaming network, Revry’s mission has focused on embracing the diversity of its intersectional and international audiences. The network was proud to celebrate Pride last month by live streaming 24+ continuous hours of GLOBAL PRIDE that included over 500 Pride organizations, along with dignitaries and celebrities like Joe Biden, Sir Elton John, Nancy Pelosi, Laverne Cox, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Kesha and Todrick Hall. The event streamed to over 57 million worldwide.

“Revry’s LGBTQ+ content is an important part of the Plex programming mix, offering options that represent diversity and inclusivity in informative and entertaining ways,” said Keith Valory, CEO of Plex. “At Plex our goal is to be the home for all the media that matters to you, providing our users with a wide range of viewing options, and it’s great to join the ranks of Cox, Samsung, and Roku in distributing content that represents the voices of so many.”
