Syndicado is extremely pleased to announce the acquisition of ZoomerMedia’s IdeaCity, a series that features notable guest speakers covering a wide variety of topics, highlighting new ideas, innovative thinkers and mind-opening content. Hosted by ZoomerMedia’s very own Moses Znaimer, best known for co-founding CityTV, the annual three day series is a daily dose of popular science, art and inspiration, and will be available in the USA on the free, ad-supported Hulu and Hulu Plus subscription service on June 18, 2014.
“Pairing TV pioneer Moses Znaimer of ZoomerMedia and his visionary series IdeaCity with VOD was a real coup and we’re thrilled to announce the launch of IdeaCity in the USA on Hulu this morning!” said Greg Rubidge, President and founder of digital distributor Syndicado. “Hulu is the perfect platform for IdeaCity to debut on, and it marks the beginning of a slate of new series we’ve partnered with Zoomer on to distribute digitally internationally.”
Included in their distribution deal, Syndicado will also be releasing VisionTV’s series Supernatural Investigator and a slew of other series.
“After a review of several VOD aggregators and distributors, we’re delighted to announce our partnership with Syndicado. With a successful track record launching TV series on Hulu and other leading platforms in the USA, and with offices right here in Toronto and in the US, we felt it was the most strategic option to grow our brand and presence internationally, in the new world of distribution.” Said McLean Greaves, VP of Digital with ZoomerMedia.
