Cult TV Channel Promises Weekly “Horror Con In Your Living Room” For 2015
Atlanta, Georgia – Cult and Horror entertainment from some of the industry’s most creative independent producers and distributors is coming to fans’ televisions, computers, and mobile devices every Wednesday night starting in 2015. Viewers will be able to watch with no fees or charges from virtually anywhere in the world at CouchCutter.tv and on Roku-connected televisions.
Programming will not be offered “on-demand”, instead providing viewers with a weekly dose of full, live late-night broadcasts boasting Feature Films, Shorts, Specials, Marathons, and Series.
“Some of us are ancient enough to remember watching late-night cable in the 80’s and early 90’s: discovering crazy new shows and movies, hanging out with our friends, and building awesome memories together,” said David Anthony, Founder. “It wasn’t just ‘TV’, it was an event. We want to give that back to cult cinema fans in a way that makes sense for the 21st Century.”
Viewers can tweet along using the #couchcutter hashtag, watching live with fans all over the world from virtually any internet connected device. Roku owners can easily connect to almost any television and watch from anywhere: HDTV at a bar or party, a friend’s house, or from the comfort of their own living room.
This “21st century upgrade” also extends to CouchCutter.tv’s innovative business model, in which Filmmakers get paid while giving up almost no rights, Viewers watch at no charge, and Sponsors can afford valuable broadcast airtime.
“We are leveraging the technology available to us in hopes of making a real impact on the lives of Cult, Horror, and Fantasy enthusiasts,” Anthony added. “To bring genre fans joy and fellowship through live broadcast entertainment, provide organizations with a unique and powerful promotional platform, and help independent filmmakers and distributors earn money from their content in an increasingly difficult industry.”
Launched in 2009 as CouchCutter.com, CouchCutter.tv now provides an international live broadcasting platform for Cult, Horror, and Fantasy fans. In past reincarnations CouchCutter.com hosted the world premiere of James Bickert’s “Dear God No!” trailer, published the first review to be written of both that film and Astron-6’s “Father’s Day”, co-produced short films with directors Drew Bolduc, Lori Bowen, and Shannon Lark, and invested in projects with Trent Haaga, Ryan Nicholson, and Logan Myers. CouchCutter.tv is owned by Eiphes, LLC, an internet development company established in Douglasville, Ga.
