We just launched a new product that is near and dear to hearts—it’s called Chill Direct. Direct is the entertainment industry’s first platform for filmmakers, comedians and musicians to produce, own and distribute content directly to their fans. We believe this is a critical step towards an ecosystem where artists are finally in control of their creative destiny.
