July 11, 2016

Just months after pushing “go” on its new SVOD, Fullscreen has launched a new linear content initiative designed, in part, to raise the raise the profile of the fledgling service.

In partnership with AT&T, Snack on Fullscreen offers customers of AT&T’s DirecTV and U-verse services can now tune in to regularly scheduled Fullscreen programming on their home televisions.

Every Saturday at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT, viewers can tune into the Audience Network to watch full episodes of Fullscreen’s original content that, prior to the partnership, only customers with subscriptions to the Fullscreen SVOD could access.

Fullscreen’s long-form originals include the remake of Sid and Marty Krofft’s Electra Woman and Dyna Girl (starring Grace Helbig, pictured)Filthy Preppy Teen$, My Selfie Life and more.

Short-form content will also air throughout the week — eight to 10-minute segments will air on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons on the Audience Network. Included in the line up:

  • Jack & Dean of All Trades, in which two up-and-coming comedians take on a variety of temp jobs with unpredictable results;
  • Making Moves, an L.A. dance drama created by Step Up All In writer John Swetnam;
  • Veitch 101, a comedic take on the newest technology from Brit comedian James Veitch;
  • Single + Swiping, a docu-series exploring the realities of dating apps; and
  • Chad Future TV, a journey to Seoul, South Korea with K-Pop influenced American musician Chad Future.

AT&T has had a long relationship with Fullscreen, including its partnership through the AT&T Hello Lab, an incubator program to create new content for Fullscreen creators.

The U.S. telco was also the launch sponsor of the Fullscreen SVOD when the service went live in April.
