Top Syndicated Fox Shows to Be Added to Progressive Distribution Platform
June 26, 2015 – San Diego, CA. Beginning this fall, Fox Networks will begin using the PitchBlue® by Vigor platform to distribute their expansive list of syndicated content. Top syndicated shows like Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother and Bob’s Burgers will join the roster of other popular programming that the PitchBlue platform currently distributes across 1,500 North American locations.
“We have been listening to feedback from stations and are pleased with the benefits they are receiving from the high level of automation provided by PitchBlue®,” said Magnus Sorlander, CEO and Founder of Vigor Systems. “I am excited for Fox to join CBS and Deluxe in utilizing our progressive distribution system and to experience those benefits as well.”
The PitchBlue platform consists of an IRD-style MagnuBox Server, management software and is monitored 24/7. Partners on the PitchBlue platform receive advanced logistical service and operational support to handle the complexity of digital media deliveries.
