Film distribution disruptor Filmhub signs deals with Germany’s rlaxx TV, UK’s PlayerPlus, and Canada’s Zuzu, expanding international distribution potential for its Filmmakers.
Santa Monica, CA (6/7/21) - Filmhub, the dynamic disruptor in the film distribution space, is excited to announce that they have closed three (3) new international distribution deals getting filmmakers further access to streaming services worldwide. rlaxx TV (Germany), PlayerPlus (United Kingdom), and Zuzu (Canada) are now utilizing Filmhub to license titles for their respective services.

Their innovative and fresh approach in the film distribution space compliments our premium, category-based, direct-to-consumer services such as StagePlayerPlus.”
