Another streaming platform is entering the fray. A new platform called Binge has been announced, and it describes itself as “the future of gaming entertainment.” Right off the bat, it’s important to stress that this Binge is separate from the streaming service called Binge that’s already available in Australia.
This new Binge is focused on gaming specifically. The platform will host “premium original series and shows” inspired by video games and creators. Allan Ungar, who directed Nathan Fillion in the Uncharted fan film, is the chief content officer for Binge.
“When I directed Uncharted, the film, with Nathan Fillion starring as Nathan Drake, it was designed to be a love letter for the gaming community but to also prove there was a place for these kinds of adaptations,” he said. “It was about staying loyal to the IP and the DNA of that world. The support the film received shed light on the fact that there is a real demand for this kind of content. Now we are thrilled to bring that same passion and fandom to binge.com. But, most importantly, to create an opportunity for gamers around the world to actively contribute and help define the future of games entertainment with us.”
