The Orchard’s rapidly growing action sports and lifestyle film distribution division, The Orchard Sports, continues to lure industry-leading producers from around the world. Since launching less than 6 months ago, word has spread fast about The Orchard Sports’ impressive value proposition for producers and content owners: sell your films on more online platforms, get free and unlimited delivery to stores, enjoy seamless daily sales analytics, see the benefits of our marketing and take comfort in our personalized support.
Recent signings include motor sports powerhouse Duke Video, BMX film producer Props Visual, snowmobile producer Slednecks, kiteboard & wakeboard pro Slingshot Sports and ski film leader Matchstick Productions. The Orchard Sports will continue to partner with the leading action sports and lifestyle brands, studios and producers this year to build the category at digital retailers like iTunes, Hulu, X-Box, Playstation, Amazon, VUDU and Google Play, using its relationships and merchandising expertise to convert a once specialized market into a mainstream category alongside Hollywood movies.
Lead by industry veteran Danny Grant, the effort has been well received by both content providers and digital retailers. On Hulu, for example, The Orchard Sports now represents 11 of the top 15 most popular action sports films of all time according to today’s rankings.
