Zurich-based online platform Viewster has acquired AVOD and SVOD rights to nearly 600 minutes of Red Arrow International programming.

Included in the rights purchase are series Extreme Fighting (8 x 45-minutes, Snowman Productions), Extreme Jobs (20 x 25-minutes), Seven Deadly Sins (7 x 45-minutes), Sex Report (5 x 45-minutes) and The Traveling Whore – The True Story (2 x 45-minutes).

Also factored in are a pair of specials:  the 1 x 45-minute The Man Who Streaked the World (NERD and Middlechild Productions) and the 1 x 45-minute Playground Murder Plot (NERD for Channel 4) will be available to Viewster viewers in the UK, the U.S., Canada, France, Australia and 11 other countries.

Extreme Fighting documents the lives of ultimate fighters, pro wrestlers, and “vale tudo” fighters around the world, in and outside of the ring, through eight episodes.

The special The Man Who Streaked The World follows Mark Roberts, as he finds the right setting for his final streak, while Playground Murder Plot chronicles two children who shot and killed a man.

The aforementioned three programs will be featured on Viewster in September, with the remainder available in October.

Joseph Quan, Red Arrow International’s sales and acquisitions manager for North America, praised the new partnership. Viewster is a hub for great content – it’s a brilliant new partner for us,” he said in a statement.
