Revry is a platform that’s been offering audio and video streaming of “queer-centric” content since a beta launch in March, but now the company is stripping off that beta badge and setting its sights on original programming.
Available to access through native iOS and Android apps, or via Apple TV, Roku or Chromecast devices, the platform brings together podcasts, videos and music but aims to differentiate itself from other similar platforms with the production of original content. The first of those efforts began last month and will eventually result in two new original series exclusive to Revry.
It’s not just for gay audiences, the company points out:
“Revry is about inclusivity; plain and simple. Some of our content is about LGBTQ characters, some is created by LGBTQ filmmakers, some content features stories about straight characters that simply live in an LGBTQ-inclusive world, and other content is just kitschy and fun.”
This LGBTQ-inclusive and kitschy world isn’t free, however. Plans that are billed monthly cost $4.99, or if you sign up for a year that’ll cost $54.99 – making around the same cost as the cheaper Netflix plans.
