Electric Now app: Episodes of The Librarians and Leverage now available
Fans of the CW show The Outpost now have a new app for watching episodes on streaming devices and smartphones.
The Electric Now app made its debut this week with a slate of TV shows and movies that are free to watch.
The movies and shows all come from Electric Entertainment, the Los Angeles based production, distribution and post-production company. Dean Devlin, CEO of Electric Entertainment, said the app will be a one-stop shop for fans of its shows, which now air on CW and WGN America.
“For a long time, we have wanted to create a hub where we could aggregate all our various fan bases from “Leverage,” “The Librarians,” “The Outpost,” “Almost Paradise” and all of our podcast subscribers into a single space,” Devlin said.
He added that the company has been fortunate with nurturing a direct relationship with its audience through social media and personal appearances.
“This app gives us a central platform to show them how much we enjoy and treasure that relationship,” he said.
Podcasts, Bonus footage
The Electric Now app will also carry all bonus materials from its programs along with a program guide.
Electric’s podcast network, ELECTRIC SURGE is featured on the app. Audio podcasts include, Inglorious Treksperts, The 4:30 Movie, Best Movies Never Made, The Rebel & The Rogue.
All of Electric Entertainment’s vast library of film, television and video podcasts will be available on the Electric Now app. Most of the app’s content will be advertising supported and offered to the public free of charge. The app will have a section where viewers can purchase shows to enjoy without commercials.
The linear and video-on-demand channel is already available on Roku, Apple TV, iOS, Google Play, Android App Store, and Fire TV.
The company says the Electric Now app will be available on multiple platforms, including smartphones, tablets and smart TVs in the U.S. exclusively. The ad-supported Electric Now channel, launched in 2019, is on multiple platforms including Stirr and XUMO.
