Kultur Licenses Riverdance for its Cultural SVOD Channel
US-based cultural programming network Kultur announced a broad licensing deal with the Dublin-based Tyrone Productions Ltd for three Riverdance titles
CEO Thomas Buchar states, "Riverdance is undeniably brilliant - its popularity extends from Dublin to Chicago to Beijing. We are elated to have entered into our second decade in partnership with Tyrone Productions Ltd and to be part of Riverdance’s 20th Anniversary celebrations this year.”
Tyrone Productions MD Patricia Carroll states, “Over the past twenty years Riverdance has played 10,000 performances, been seen live by 25 million people in 465 venues worldwide, in 46 countries and 6 continents. Now through Kultur.com’s SVOD new service, audiences will be able to enjoy Riverdance in their own homes.

Adds, Buchar, “We are privileged that Riverdance is one of the premier franchises that we will be sharing with our SVOD subscribers upon launch. It is entertainment like this that is helping Kultur become the number one provider of cultural content on the Internet."
