CONtv is an OTT streaming service launched in March 2015 as a joint venture between Cinedigm and Wizard World.[1][2]

The service is catered towards fans of geek and nerd culture, featuring cult classic films and television series, digital comics, and behind-the-scenes content from Wizard World's Comic Cons.[3]

History

On February 5, 2019, Viewster was acquired by Cinedigm and, on June 13, 2020, would merge with CONtv and rebranded as CONtv Anime.[6][7][8]
