Mumbai – March 18, 2021 – Today, Vuulr, the leading global online content marketplace for film and television rights, launched ‘Brandable Screening Rooms,’ featuring the largest collection of screening rooms, showing over 1,100 films and TV shows from more than 250 rights holders, including Gaumont, Legendary Television, SPI, TVCO, Insight TV, Globo, One Animation, Toonz Media, Indiacast, GMA, CNN and Vision Film.
For no-cost, studios, distributors, production houses, and indie content makers can now feature their content in their own Screening Rooms, which can be branded with logos, company descriptions, and URLs, making it easy for rights holders to promote their unique Screening Rooms.
Vuulr’s Screening Rooms are designed to improve deal closing by reducing friction and streamlining the acquisition journey. An interested buyer, having watched a screener, can instantly check avails, and make an acquisition offer.
“I believe that Screenings should be a part of an unbroken journey that translates interest from a Buyer into an offer and then into a deal,” said Ian McKee, Founder and CEO of Vuulr. “By integrating Screening Room functionality to theVuulr marketplace, screenings become a part of an unbroken content discovery journey. We’re laser-focused on making content acquisition quicker and easier, and this is a natural next step.”
Vuulr is free to use for buyers; for sellers, there are no upfront costs and commission fees are only paid on success. To date, content sellers from around the globe have listed 135,000 hours of content in more than 60 genres and 70 languages on Vuulr.

The unique platform provides buyers the opportunity to discover film and television content of all genres and varying lengths, appealing to audiences’ global appetite.
