VersusMedia Combines Filmmakers and Musicians, Puts Result on Android TV

VersusMedia may be a media company you haven’t heard of, but it’s been around 2001. It has been working to connect independent filmmakers with musicians. They’ve touted it as a great success. Filmmakers need music to put as the backtrack to their films, and musicians need videos that showcase their music. The platform has been making it much easier for content creators of both types to develop the highest quality projects without extensive hiring and with a lower budget.

Yet they’re not stopping with just that platform. They just launched VersusMedia.tv, a new venture to expose users to independent filmmakers and musicians through new apps. Users on Roku, Fire TV, and Android TV are able to download apps and start watching for free.

The service is putting content in different channels, although it’s really just categories such as “music videos” and “feature films”. It should be noted the content being distributed is not all of the content created through VersusMedia. They’re separately seeking out indie filmmakers and musicians to submit content. Maybe one day they can create true channels with constant streams of new indie content. In the meantime, it’s still a great place to find and watch music videos and short films.

The app is free to download from the Google Play Store.
