Meeting the strong demand for quality faith and family programming, Crossflix launches today as the digital destination for Christian entertainment, education, and inspiration. Currently available on Apple TV, Google Chromecast, FireTV, Roku, Google Play and on the Internet, Crossflix is finalizing placement of their content on iOS, which will launch in the coming weeks.
The network launches with one of the largest high-quality collections of titles and trailers, with new content being added weekly. The streaming platform merges the best in faith and family films, faith-inspired documentaries, children's animated and educational Biblical programs, and inspirational videos. Parents can rest assured that Crossflix content never contains nudity or offensive language.
Crossflix is founded by Alan Mehrez and co-founded by his wife and business partner Aileen Rodriguez. Mehrez, a Harvard educated entrepreneur, is well known as a successful Producer and Director of films such as the Bloodsport franchise, the first of which launched the career of actor Jean-Claude Van Damme. Mr. Mehrez also directed projects including "Bloodsport 2," "Bloodsport 3," and "Sinbad: The Battle of the Dark Knights." Mehrez's catalog of films has been released by Lionsgate, Warner Brothers, HBO, Showtime, and other studios. In addition, Mehrez and Rodriguez have worked as International Film Distributors licensing film rights all over the world.
Crossflix has just wrapped production of their original series "The Living Bible" which consists of 50 half-hour episodes. Nine episodes are included in today's launch and the balance will be released two episodes at a time over a twenty-week period. Along with "The Living Bible" series, Crossflix is in different stages of production on ten additional television shows, releasing over the coming year.
In addition to original content, Crossflix has acquired top entertainment properties, including "Revive Us" featuring faith-audience superstar Kirk Cameron ("Fireproof," "Courageous") and the Cedarmont Kids series (Sony) which has sold over 22 million DVDs. For both titles, Crossflix is the exclusive digital debut. Hundreds of additional titles have been acquired, including content from major distributors such as Vision Video, Bridgestone Multimedia Group and Green Apple Entertainment.
