XITE LAUNCHES BRAND NEW MUSIC VIDEO CHANNELS ON SAMSUNG TV PLUS
The music video service extends its partnership with Samsung, launching new channels on the tech giant’s linear service.
BROOKLYN — August 17, 2021 — Today, global music video platform XITE, and smart TV leader Samsung announced XITE’s first ad-supported linear distribution deal in North America. Partnering with Samsung, XITE will launch four music video channels on the Samsung TV Plus service. XITE’s Rock On and Just Chill channels launched first, with 2 additional channels to be announced at a later date.
XITE’s Rock On channel features Rock and Metal music videos from the iconic classics to today’s boundary redefining future legends, while the Just Chill channel allows users to take a moment to unwind with laidback music videos, intimate live performances and acoustic sessions. Both channels boast one hour of theme-specific programming each weeknight at 10 PM Eastern / 7 PM Pacific, such as “80’s Rock x Metal” each Tuesday on Rock on, and “Mellow Hip-Hop” Thursdays on Just Chill.
Cees Honig, Co-CEO of XITE, said, “XITE continues to champion the return of music videos to the living room. Our interactive app gives consumers the power to control and personalize their music video journey. In contrast, our latest partnership with Samsung TV Plus provides consumers with a highly curated linear experience that allows them to just lean back and enjoy.”
