Great American Media Marks First Anniversary of Merger with Pure Flix, Exclusive New Talent Deals, Original Movies, and First-Ever Original Mystery Series, Candace Cameron Bure's "The Ainsley McGregor Mysteries: A Case for the Winemaker"

Transformational Deal Confirms Great American Media as a Global Leader in Faith & Family Entertainment

NEW YORK, June 25, 2024 -- Great American Media (GAM) proudly marks the first anniversary of its successful merger with Sony Pure Flix to create the nation's leading family and faith-friendly entertainment platform, the network announced while attending the annual Questex's StreamTV Show in Denver, CO., the largest meeting ground for leaders and innovators in the streaming television industry.

"Bringing Great American Family linear and Pure Flix streaming together under the Great American Media brand gives viewers uplifting and inspiring family and faith entertainment they can enjoy together, anywhere, anytime, and on any device," said Bill Abbott, CEO of Great American Media. "The results have been extremely positive on our business and the user experience."

Abbott explained that last year's merger combined Great American Media's linear and FAST (free ad-supported streaming TV) channels with the Pure Flix faith and family SVOD (subscription video on demand) service.

"Our brands and diversified content distribution capabilities have helped us reach substantially larger and broader audiences on each platform, creating a family and faith-friendly streaming service unlike any other," he added.

The merger enhanced both platforms' content library and created synergies between cable and streaming services, meeting customer expectations for a fulfilling, uplifting, and inspiring entertainment experience. Since the merger, SVOD subscriptions have increased and the customer experience has been enhanced through several platform upgrades, making the streaming service intuitive and user-friendly.

Meanwhile, Great American Media has signed new talent agreements with some of entertainment's most iconic stars. In January, Great American kicked off the year by announcing that Mario Lopez would join the network in a multi-year, multi-picture deal, followed by the premiere of Alexa and Carlos PenaVega's first original film for Great American, Mr. Manhattan. The PenaVegas also will appear on screen in another Great American Media original production Love At The Kettle (wt), produced by Lopez about a couple serving others.
