Halo-8 Launches Televandalism with Pop Skull
Halo-8 Entertainment has announced that Pop Skull will be its first "day and date" DVD/digital film release, timed with the official launch of Halo-8's VOD website Televandalism (in beta since 2008), which offers VOD-streaming subscriptions (all streaming titles for a total subscription of $.99 per month) or DVD-quality downloads ($9.99 each, with instructions for porting them to your TV) of films, comics, fitness/lifestyle videos, webisodes, and video games.
Pop Skull (review) will make its debut both on DVD and on Televandalism July 28, 2009. "Pop Skull is the kind of groundbreakingly different film that needs to be seen to be believed, so we want it seen by as many people as possible," said Halo-8 president Matt Pizzolo. "We know how our audience wants instant access to the newest coolest media, so we're very excited that Televandalism offers a way for us to get new films, comics, and games to our audience even faster and more reliably than Pirate Bay can."
Pizzolo goes into further detail on delivering movies via computer for viewing on TV in his recent post "There's a bridge from the Internet to your TV--Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are the trolls under it" in his Hollywood-2.0 blog.
Along with Pop Skull, Televandalism's offerings will include:
