Twitch is continuing to build onto its 24/7 linear channel offering with the addition of Chopertown, a channel that features motorcycle, hot rod, racing and other gearhead content curated from over a decade of library acquisitions and original award-winning productions. The channel, which is from One World Digital, will also include live programming from motorcycle rallies around the world, visits to underground shops, and live coverage of motorcycle racing events, such as Harley-Davidson’s Hooligans.
“We have spent the past twelve years engaging and building a massive global community around our films and it’s incredible to finally have an interactive linear channel dedicated to our audience and easily available to our fans on a global scale,” said One World Digital CEO, Zack Coffman.
Twitch has put a strong focus on building out its linear offering over the past year. The Amazon-owned platform now has about one dozen linear channels. The first of these channels launched on the service was FailArmy from Jukin Media. The 24/7 linear channel lineup also includes content from Omnia Media, Machinima, IGN, Baeble, and ConTV (powered in partnership with Cinedigm).
“By letting the Twitch community interact in real-time with Choppertown’s impressive library of gearhead TV shows and films, as well as live content from races and rallies, it marks a cool milestone for 24/7 content on our service,” added Jane Weedon, Director of Business Development, Twitch.
One World Digital, LLC has a library of over 500 hours of long-form motorcycle and automotive documentaries and narrative features, and has created and distributed original content for global brands such as Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Discovery, and Harley-Davidson Motor Company.
