Rooftop Media Takes Flight with digEcor Distribution Deal

August 25, 2009

The Rooftop Comedy Channel Featured on Portable In-Flight Entertainment

Rooftop Media (www.RooftopMedia.net), the leading interactive media producer of original comedy content and comedic branded entertainment, today announces a content distribution deal for the Rooftop Comedy Channel with digEcor (www.digEcor.com), the premier provider of portable In-flight Entertainment (IFE) to the airline industry.

Featuring clips of the best, live stand-up comedy, the Rooftop Comedy Channel will be available on such airlines as Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and KLM Royal Dutch, as well as others that feature the digEplayer. As a manufacturer of handheld multi-media devices, digEcor provides passengers worldwide with a large selection of content such as movies, TV shows, music, music videos, games, book summaries, and now stand-up comedy.

Rooftop Media records live comedy performances 365 nights a year at more than 20 comedy clubs throughout North America, Europe and Australia, distributing original comedy programming to mobile, web, broadcast, and print outlets. digEcor joins existing Rooftop Media partners such as Current TV, Apple iTunes, Yahoo!, Nokia, Hulu, FastCompany Magazine, YouTube, and TiVO. Working with more than 3,500 professional comedians, Rooftop Media maintains a growing video library of tens of thousands of hours of original comedy content.

"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. "Having searched for the right source for stand-up comedy for some time, Rooftop Media emerged as exactly the partner we needed to fill this important need in our In-flight Entertainment line-up."

"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."
