Midnight Pulp Launches as Streaming Service for Genre Videos

The over-the-top platform features cult, sci-fi, horror and action films

There's a new place on the Internet for fans of horror, sci-fi and cult films. 

Streaming service Midnight Pulp has launched from multi-platform distributor Digital Media Rights with a library of genre films and television shows from around the world. The over-the-top channel has a free, ad-supported tier and a subscription tier, which includes director's cuts and bonus features, that starts at $5 a month.

Midnight Pulp was developed using technology platform Zype, which makes the service compatible for Android and iOS operating systems in addition to devices such as Chromecast and Roku. Popular titles currently listed on the site include Spanish horror film The Valdemar Legacy and anthology Tales from the Dark

"The launch of Midnight Pulp is an important next phase in Digital Media Rights' business," said co-founder and president David Chu, noting that the company looks to aggregate content that is traditionally "underserved on pay TV and other major streaming services."

Digital Media Rights has a catalog of more than 10,000 titles that it distributes across platforms and through its branded channels, which include Indie Crush, Asian Crush and Latin Crush.
