There's no shortage of new streaming platforms coming out these days. And although more movies have been a good thing for us movie fans, the number of options for where to watch them can get overwhelming.
Thankfully, now there's an app for that.
Struum, a joint effort between two companies (Walt Disney Co. and Discovery Inc.) will aggregate content from smaller video-on-demand services, rather than provide it under its own subscription.
Their mission is simple: create the easiest way for people to find more of the movies they love by providing it through a single subscription.
The company will be lead by Lauren DeVillier (in addition to other former Disney and Discovery senior executives) and is backed by former Disney CEO Michael Eisner through his investment firm, Tornante Company, according to Tech Crunch.
“As the (over the top) space continues to expand, there is an incredible amount of amazing video content options for TV and Movie streaming fans, but it can be overwhelming," DeVillier said in the company's official announcement.
The former head of product at Discovery Ventures, DeVillier is also a member of The Producers Guild of America, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and is an advisory board member to the Alliance for Women in Media. Struum should be up and running by Spring 2021, but no specific launch date has been announced yet.
