Dance Network, a subscription-based video on demand service devoted to dance programming, will launch in the fall, its backers announced Tuesday.
The service will have tiered pricing: $6.99 a month, $5.99 a month for six months and $4.99 a month for a yearlong subscription. Subscribers will have access to original programming as well as acquired content from programming libraries.
A preview event for the service took place in Nashville on July 25. The new network’s slate features original programming such as “Traveling Dancer,” which showcases local dance styles from around the globe; “To the Stage,” which follows the competitive real life efforts of high school show choirs in the vein of Fox’s hit series “Glee”; and a flash mob series, “Steady Mobbin’.” Dance Network will also feature newly acquired film and television content libraries including classics from years past to the international editions of hits from the BBC.
Dance Network’s official full network launch is set for October 2015 on Apple iOS and Android mobile phones, Roku and through its Web portal.
