Rooftop Media just announced a distribution deal with digEcor, a major in-flight entertainment provider, to bring the Rooftop Comedy Channel to commercial flights.
Rooftop Comedy, which tapes live stand-up comedy shows every night, will have their content available on Hawaiian Airlines, Alaska Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch, and others that feature the digEplayer.
“While flying, passengers often don’t have enough time to invest in a movie or television show, so short content such as great stand-up comedy provides an enjoyable and desirable way to pass the time on flights,” said Jed Thompson, Content Administrator of digEcor.
“This deal with digEcor takes Rooftop Media to new heights,” said Will C. Rogers, founder and CEO of Rooftop Media. “Deals like this one allow us to take the performance out of the comedy club and deliver it directly to the fans no matter where they are.”
Rooftop also has partnerships with companies such as iTunes, Hulu, and TiVO.
