AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder has launched in Australia and New Zealand.
The countries are the sixth and seventh to gain access to the SVOD which has a content library entirely based around horror movies and series. Content ranges from classics like Hellraiser and Donnie Darko to Shudder originals including the video meeting-based Host which was recently shot entirely during quarantine.
Shudder originally launched in 2016 in the US, before expanding to Canada, the UK, Ireland and Germany. It is available via iOS, Apple TV, Android, Android TV and FireTV. A subscription will cost A$5.83 or NZ$6.67(US$4.19).
Shudder general manager Craig Engler said: “We’re thrilled to share our unrivaled collection of curated horror and supernatural movies and series with Australian and New Zealand audiences just in time for Halloween season, where we feature our biggest and best programming of the year,” said “These new launches continue our growing international expansion and our commitment to offer premium genre entertainment to a global audience.”
Earlier this year during the height of the pandemic, AMC offered an extended 30-day free trial of Shudder to new customers it called ‘shut-ins’.
