Dove Channel Brings Out Holiday Classics; CW Gets DC Universe Series with Sitcom Star

Dove Channel

The DOVE Channel turns back the clock this holiday season, as the faith-based digital-first Cinedigm (CIDM) network puts the spotlight on four retro classics from Hollywood's Golden Age. As part of this special event, DOVE Channel is giving viewers a chance to enjoy premium programming for the whole family all year long with the "Deck the Halls with DOVE" offer-available for just $19.99. The roster is available now and includes the color-restored 1935 Charles Dickens adaptation Scrooge (A Christmas Carol), starring Donald Calthrop as the quintessential miser who embarks on a legendary journey through Christmas past, present, and future; as well as the beloved 1964 favorite Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, featuring the vocal talents of iconic entertainer Burl Ives; a collection of side-splitting and heartwarming holiday sketches starring one of comedy's most influential funnymen in Red Skelton Christmas Classics; the rarely seen 1966 fantasy Santa's Christmas Circus Starring Whizzo The Clown, with Vaudeville star Frank Wiziarde as the titular clown who guides a group of children on a magic carpet ride to visit Santa.

Additionally, the Dove Channel linear network is offering a variety of curated holiday blocks airing throughout the season, including "Reason For the Season," "12 Days to Christmas," "Feliz Navi-Dogs," "Dove Christmas Yule Log," and "A Mayberry New Years Eve." The live linear channel is available on Samsung, Stirr, and XUMO, as well as through the Direct-To-Consumer app on web, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire, & Roku. Dove Channel is also available on Dish, Sling TV and Vizio as a SVOD service.


Stargirl

The highly anticipated DC Universe series Stargirl will now have an exclusive linear window on The CW Network, which will broadcast each episode the day after its debut on the DC Universe digital subscription service. The new DC Super Hero drama series, starring Brec Bassinger in the title role, is set to make its premiere on DC Universe in second quarter 2020, with new episodes released weekly on the first-of-its-kind digital experience. Additionally, every episode of Stargirl will be available to stream on The CW's free digital platforms, following its broadcast on The CW Network, throughout the season. Under The CW's new digital strategy, viewers will be able to stream Stargirl from the beginning at any point throughout the season on CWTV.com and The CW app – free, with no subscription, login or authentication required, and fully ad-supported. After the season finale of Stargirl, the full season will be available to binge on The CW's digital platforms.

The new DC Universe drama series Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore (series star Brec Bassinger, Bella and the Bulldogs, School of Rock, The Goldbergs) as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.
