In recent years, major corporations have entered the streaming service industry which has been dominated by Netflix. Disney+ along with Hulu, Amazon Prime, and more have seen increases in the industry due to the coronavirus pandemic which has caused people to be more at home because of quarantine and lockdown orders to curb the curve.
Now, The Source Magazine, which has been in the world of hip hop since the 1990’s as an information hub where fans would get exclusive interviews, news, and articles on the top trending issues in the game is now entering the streaming business.
Making the announcement during Black History Month, The NorthStar Group Chairman and owner/publisher of The SOURCE, L. Londell McMillan has made public statements on what to expect from the service and why he felt it was the right time to move into this realm of entertainment.
“It’s time for the remix. Our goal is to curate Black and Hispanic stories and use the Hip-Hop DNA of The SOURCE to present great content for all audiences,” McMillan said. “We’ve created a brand-safe home for vital films and music to be discovered, nostalgic moments to be rediscovered, and news to be broken. It’s a place where brands can reach a powerful audience and establish a genuine connection to them through The SOURCE and The NorthStar Group.”
The streaming service will provide viewers different categories of entertainment such as SOURCE Originals, Films, Music, News, and Culture. The Source VOD will be dropping an original documentary film entitled “The Pursuit Of Greatness” while also bringing a new scripted series title To Live & Die In Bed Stuy will be on Source Streaming.
