The global consumer premiere is scheduled to launch wide in the summer of 2019 and it will first be available on the App Store and Google Play, with availability on other platforms anticipated soon after.
In this early preview, premium documentary titles from a variety of countries including France, USA, Norway, India, Australia, Cambodia, Turkey, and Netherlands, will be available to screen. Making discovery easy through affinity-based categories like Nature, Action, Travel, Culture, and Science, DocuBay intends to further refine these ‘bays’ by analyzing watch habits and consumer surveys of the early adopters to DocuBay.
In addition to DocuBay’s participation at MIPDoc, the DocuBay team will be exhibiting at MIPTV (booth# P-1.D70) looking to acquire documentary film content from global distributors, as well as meet with potential investors and international coproduction partners.
Akul Tripathi, COO of DocuBay, stated: 'We are thrilled to introduce DocuBay to the global content community attending MIPDOC and MIPTV, and to share our great passion for documentary films with audiences around the world. Humankind, as a race, has always had the uncontrollable desire to tell their tale. To save it for posterity. Etched in stone, sketched on rock, sung through the ages, engraved, embossed, stitched, typed, recorded, photographed and now filmed – documentaries are just the latest in a long series of the preferred repository of human experience. These cumulative/many experiences unite us as One Tribe, which is at the core of DocuBay philosophy. We invite all MIPDoc attendees to join us at the International Pitch sessions and look forward to meeting MIPTV attendees at our booth; and welcome the opportunity to meet with potential global partners.'
Aditya Pittie, Managing Director, IN10 Media, added: 'IN10 Media’s goal has always been to deliver excellent content across genres and platforms, and we are proud to add DocuBay to our stellar class of brands. With consumers worldwide having more content choices than ever, DocuBay’s constantly expanding library of international documentary films will create its own niche through its focus on discovery and distribution. We are delighted to share this first look at MIPDoc and MIPTV in Cannes.'
