“We just launched Documentary+ this year and our community of documentary fans and filmmakers has
grown exponentially,” said Bryn Mooser, Documentary+ Founder & CEO. “With XUMO we can reach big new audiences and give our fans a 24/7 experience to watch the best in documentary film and television.”
“The Documentary+ channel will engage millions of XUMO users with its extensive range of premium documentary films and series, easily accessible across our wide distribution network,” stated Stefan Van Engen, SVP of content partnerships and programming at XUMO. “XUMO continues to partner with best-in-class content providers and this new offering from Documentary+ is no exception.”
XUMO became available on Apple TV in June, giving users access to over 200 channels. Origin Sports Network launched on XUMO in July. To reach a more diverse audience, XUMO has launched three Telemundo channels.
