VH1 Rock Doc, "DOWNLOADED," Streams Free Today on AOL
Sep 12, 2013
Today, we're excited to announce an AOL-first. We've acquired a feature film to stream for free on AOL On: VH1 rock doc Downloaded, which takes viewers behind-the-scenes of the monumental rise and fall of Napster.
Head to downloadeddoc.com to stream Downloaded, the critically acclaimed doc directed by Alex Winter. It will also be available through the AOL On app on mobile devices and TV, as well as AOL brand channels including Moviefone, Cambio, and Mandatory. You can find the film syndicated across the AOL On Network, AOL's premium network of publishers, including featured destination site's SPIN.com and VIBE.com.
Building on AOL On's position as the web's largest library of curated video content, AOL offers filmmakers a unique digital distribution model and the opportunity to release their films to the 100M consumers visiting AOL each month across its platforms. Taking into consideration the changing habits of viewers across different devices, AOL will provide multiple viewing experiences for Downloaded. Consumers will have the option to watch the film in seven distinct chapters or view it in its entirety, and will have access to new, exclusive bonus content. AOL will also offer live "add-ons" to the viewing experience tonight, such as the live chat with director Alex Winter and other special guests, which will allow for partners to drive real-time engagement with fans. In the past, AOL has similarly partnered on video content with other entertainment companies such as Sony, Discovery and Billboard.
Be sure to check out the social streaming at 6:30pm ET tonight: It will include live tweeting from the director Alex Winter, Cambio, VH1, Moviefone, Mandatory, Downloaded, Max Lugavere and other special guests.
