SAN JOSE, Calif. -- WolfeVideo today launched its worldwide video-on-demand service WolfeOnDemand.com.
The new platform for distributing LGBT movies debuts with an initial slate of 30 films. Ultimately, the service will showcase the entire Wolfe library of more than 100 gay and lesbian features and documentaries.
Current highlights on the groundbreaking worldwide LGBT movie-watching platform include recent hits: Celine Sciama's "Tomboy" (Berlin Panorama Teddy Award winner) and Sundance award winner "Undertow" (Contracorriente), alongside popular classics such as the gay teen musical "Were The World Mine," controversial lesbian drama "Loving Annabelle" and many others.
Designed to fight online piracy and maximize the commercial sharing of legal authorized films online, WolfeOnDemand features a built-in affiliate revenue program allowing fans to reap commissions when they direct others to watch movies. This game-changing model is Wolfe's latest aggressive strategy for fighting illegal movie file sharing and online piracy.
"This launch helps Wolfe meet the needs of our customers on a global scale," Wolfe founder Kathy Wolfe said. "While fighting online piracy, I had the opportunity to connect with many of our fans outside the US, who indicated that they would not pirate films if we provided reasonably priced access to our library. With the launch of WolfeOnDemand.com, we're meeting that great need."
"This opens up an incredible opportunity for Wolfe to introduce a dazzling array of films and filmmakers to an even wider audience," Wolfe president Maria Lynn said.
Providing international access to LGBT films, the website represents the latest move forward for Wolfe, after the company succeeded in their initiative last month seeking the establishment of LGBT genre sections on YouTube Movies and Hulu.
