February 5, 2024

Cineverse Feb. 5 announced the debut of the “Sid & Marty Krofft Channel,” featuring the children’s entertainment creators as branded video-on-demand (VOD) channels on select company-owned-and-operated streaming services, including Midnight Pulp (www.midnightpulp.com), Dove Channel (www.dovechannel.com) and Cineverse (www.cineverse.com).

Cineverse secured worldwide rights to an extensive catalog of the Kroffts’ TV shows in a 2023 content deal. The debut of the new channel offers viewers a nostalgic journey through the brothers’ classic live-action shows from the ’70s and ’80s. Offered initially as a VOD channel, with a live linear channel and social video/YouTube to follow, “The Sid & Marty Krofft Channel” features retro network series, including “H.R. Pufnstuf,” “The Bugaloos,” “Lidsville,” “Land of the Lost,” “Far Out Space Nuts,” and “Sigmund and the Sea Monsters”.

Content from the Krofft library can now also be watched on-demand via free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) platform, The Roku Channel. Uncut versions of Krofft’s “Electra Woman and Dyna Girl,” “Wonderbug,” “Dr. Shrinker,” “Bigfoot and Wildboy,” and “Magic Mongo,” along with long-unseen content from “The Krofft SuperStar Hour,” including “Horror Hotel,” “Lost Island,” and “The Bay City Rollers”.

“We were able to get 50 years of beautifully digitized from the original master tapes and made available quickly,” Chris McGurk, CEO of Cineverse, said in a statement.

Midnight Pulp, Dove Channel and the Cineverse streaming service are available across many platforms and devices, including VOD apps and/or live FAST channels. Sid and Marty Krofft programming can also be found on the branded Dove and Midnight Pulp’s live FAST channels on Samsung TV Plus, Vizio WatchFree+ and Sling Freestream.
