Gunpowder & Sky’s horror brand, ALTER announced today that it is launching a FAST channel across leading CTV platforms including Samsung TV Plus, STIRR, and Redbox this quarter, with more platforms to follow later this year. Following the successful expansion of the studio’s groundbreaking and dominant sci-fi brand, DUST, ALTER with its already large fanbase is poised for a welcoming reception. The ALTER channel is already available on Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, and Roku via Gunpowder and Sky’s DUST app.

With more than 6M subscribers and 30M hours of watch-time across Facebook and YouTube, ALTER has a distinct and unique brand in the horror space. ALTER curates and distributes award-winning content and, with its focus on emerging and diverse filmmakers, develops unique stories with some of the most innovative minds in the genre. The brand’s FAST channel will feature all seasons of the original series ALTER Collection, as well as acquired projects, and feature films such as Tragedy Girls and Hounds of Love, cult favorites, and select unscripted series. With the launch of its FAST Channel, ALTER will soon be available to more than 50M households worldwide.

“ALTER is committed to bringing viewers the best quality horror content in the world, from the freshest voices in the genre,“ explains Sophie Carroll, ALTER’s Senior Manager of Acquisitions. “We are excited for an ALTER FAST channel to bring more attention to our extensive catalog of originals, as well as highly-curated films and series. It’s a channel for horror fans, by horror fans.”

Since its inception, ALTER’s mission has been to not only provide a platform for creators to showcase their content, but to also help propel filmmakers onto a path for further success. ALTER’s FAST channel is the latest avenue in that ecosystem that will provide more exposure in order for projects to move forward. Examples of how ALTER has positively positioned filmmakers include; Canadian short film The Color of Your Lips directed by Annick Blanc, which is in active feature development with James Wan‘s (The Conjuring, Saw) Atomic Monster, Circle of Confusion and ALTER; and the BAFTA-nominated horror short film, The Blue Door starring Gemma Whelan (“Game of Thrones”, “The End of the F***ing World”) which was acquired by Amblin Partners to develop into a feature film.
