FreeCast is announcing a new partnership with OTT distribution company Questar Entertainment, bringing three new free ad-supported TV (FAST) channels to the company’s free channel platform. The new channels, Hipstr, FamilyTime, and GoTraveler, join hundreds of other free channels on FreeCast and are now available on the web, mobile devices, and smart TVs to all users of the free service.
Questar Entertainment is a leading producer and distributor of digital content, with a vast library of original and licensed content. Hipstr is an alternative entertainment channel, bringing the weirdest and wildest content forward and offering a new perspective on the “norm” from black, LGBTQ, and other undiscovered voices. FamilyTime features classic TV and DIY shows and movies for the whole family; timeless and uplifting content that spans generations. GoTraveler is a travel channel bringing unforgettable destinations, breathtaking adventures, and cultural experiences from across the globe to your screen.
Tracy West, FreeCast’s Executive Vice President of Digital Content, praised the new channels: “Questar Entertainment has been in this business for a long time, and that wealth of experience is such a strength. These are three high-quality channels, and while they’re diverse in their content, they each have broad appeal, and that strengthens our own free channel offering.”
Josh da Silva, Vice President of Acquisitions and Distribution for Questar Entertainment also discussed the opportunity: “Questar is very excited to be working with FreeCast. In a sea of content and applications, FreeCast's aggregated platform and content discovery tools are game-changers for connecting audiences with a wide variety of high-quality entertainment.”
