Among 4K Media’s latest digital media distribution agreements are:

TIM will be offering its TIMvision’s subscribers all 49 episodes of “Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V” Season 1, the latest series from the franchise.

Multi-Territory Agreements:

Crunchyroll, the U.S. based international online community focused on streaming Asian media with a special emphasis on anime and manga, has expanded its worldwide (outside of Asia) distribution arrangement with 4K Media with the addition of the original, uncut Japanese-language versions of “Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters” and “Yu-Gi-Oh! GX” series with English subtitles.

4K Media joins leading Hollywood studios in partnering with Tubi TV (www.tubitv.com), the world’s largest and fastest-growing -- free and legal -- video app on Connected TV devices, Mobile, and the Web. The free, video-on-demand service has licensed 154 original and uncut episodes of “Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s” with English subtitles, as well as 123 English-language episodes of the series. 

In commenting on the digital distribution partnerships, Mark Kirk, 4K Media Senior Vice President, Digital Operations, said:  “We’re thrilled to have episodes of the various

Yu-Gi-Oh! series available to fans throughout the world. 4K Media has been embracing digital media platforms as a viable method for distributing content for over a decade and will continue to do so as the numbers of fans accessing the vast Yu-Gi-Oh! library of episodes online and on mobile devices validates that decision.”

This latest round of digital distribution agreements expands 4K Media’s vast number of existing streaming partnerships for the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, including Hulu (US), Netflix (multi-territory), ClaroVideo (Latin America) and TV4 (Sweden), among others.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! animated franchise, with over 700 episodes available in up to 15 local languages, consists of the original “Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters,” “Yu-Gi-Oh! GX,” “Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s,” “Yu-Gi-Oh!
