LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 9, 2021 / Sanwire Corporation, a diversified company with a focus on technologies for the entertainment industry (“Sanwire” or the “Company”) (OTC PINK:SNWR), and its 100% wholly owned subsidiary, Intercept Music Inc. (“Intercept”), are pleased to announce that they have added a major new marketing service for their independent artists.
Intercept can now place artists music videos on the What’s Good Entertainment channel (similar to Netflix and Hulu) on the Roku and Amazon’s Fire TV platforms. The platforms collectively put an artist videos in 100 million living rooms.
The trend towards streaming music and music videos is growing rapidly. While Spotify paid artists $5 Billion in 2020, YouTube paid nearly $4 Billion, and the gap continues to close. Many users are turning to fully integrated interactive devices like Amazon’s Fire TV platform and Roku to play those streams. Intercept goal is to get their artists the greatest exposure possible and allow them to maximize their revenue.
“We are excited to be able to add music placement for our artists on the Fire TV platform and Roku,” said Tod Turner, President of Intercept. “Video is the most engaging form of music entertainment and with a combined 100 million households we believe that this is an essential addition to complement our suite of services.”
