GAC Media has GAC Family and GAC Living, both of which are available on Frndly TV ($7+/month), Philo ($25/month), Sling TV (Orange [$35/month], Blue [$35/month], Orange+Blue [$50/month], with Heartland Extra [+$6/month]). GAC Family is also available on Hulu+Live TV ($70/month plus Entertainment Add-on [+8/month]) and DirecTV Stream Choice ($90/month).
This new service, Great American Adventures, as noted, it is the first venture of GAC Media into FAST programming.
"Great American Adventures is a perfect fit as a FAST channel on XUMO," noted Stefan Van Engen, SVP of programming and partnerships at XUMO. “It’s always the right time to enjoy and celebrate the kind of everyday American traditions we all know and love. Great American Adventures delivers the high caliber content that allows us to engage millions of viewers across our network.”
Great American Adventures joins GAC Family and GAC Living as part of GAC Media’s growing stable of media brands. The new FAST channel will continue to roll out with additional apps and connected devices in the coming months.
Xumo has long been a favorite of mine. While Pluto TV is still king of the FAST services, Xumo is a great alternative. This is a big win for Xumo in the family friendly TV market. For those of us that want quality family friendly content in our Streaming Life, this is a big deal.
