FidFid exists to fill that gap in the marketplace.”
“We saw the vision with R Squared because of their involvement in nationally broadcast TV shows like “Macabre Theatre” that run in 146 markets twice a week, their generous affiliate program and their wide access to content. This should be a success for everyone.” said Carson Conant.
“Our plan is to launch FidFid in Q3 2011 with a special introductory price of only $3.99 (€2.80) per month.” said Remde.
“From day 1 FidFid will be available on virtually all systems including iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry Playbook, Android, Roku, Boxee, Samsung, Visio, Sony, Popcorn Hour, GoogleTV, Western Digital, Yahoo Connected TVs, Blu-ray players and several new devices we can’t talk about yet.” said Conant. FidFid.com will feature independent films from around the world in all genres, as well as TV shows.
