Cinedigm Launches Realmadrid TV and El Rey Network on Amazon Freevee

Independent content distributor Cinedigm announced Thursday that it has launched two linear channels on Amazon Freevee — Realmadrid TV and El Rey Network.

Realmadrid TV offers matches and thousands of hours of content featuring one of the most recognizable sports brands in the world, Real Madrid C.F.

El Rey Network, which launched as a linear channel in 2013 and then as a ad-supported streamer in 2021, offers a variety of Hispanic-inclusive programming hand-picked by director Robert Rodriguez.


This announcement comes shortly after NacellePop, a 24/7 OTT pop-culture channel, was introduced by Cinedigm and The Nacelle Company exclusively on Freevee.

“Cinedigm’s agreement with Amazon Freevee is yet another step in our strategy to expand the audience for Real Madrid’s streaming channel,” said Cinedigm President & Chief Strategy Officer Erick Opeka in a statement. “In hearing fans of Real Madrid reverentially speaking about their unwavering passion for the players and its incredible championship pedigree, it’s very easy to understand why it’s called the most valuable football brand in the world.”

“Now Amazon Freevee viewers will have the opportunity to expand their horizons and recapture their youth with El Rey Network & NacellePop,” said Cinedigm Vice President of Business Development & Strategy Jennifer Soltesz. Both unique, with diverse programming, the launch of these channels allows Freevee to connect with an even broader audience.  We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership with FreeVee by bringing these new channels to their lineup of top-quality programming.”
