DrinkTV is a new streaming service that “aims to do for drinking culture what food-focused programming has done for foodies.”
The service offers curated cocktail, beer, wine, and travel content, and will feature shows from visionaries in each field.
“Why isn’t drink culture celebrated in the same way as food?” says Jared Cotton, Co-founder of DrinkTV. “We are aiming to change that; bringing exciting and engaging programming that highlights the world of booze that permeates our culture, but just hasn’t been captured yet… until now.”
Comedian and drink aficionado Zane Lamprey brings his travel-drinking show Four Sheets to DrinkTV. “This iteration of Lamprey’s travel-drinking shows takes him around the world to uncover drinking customs and traditions, as he throws ’em back with the locals from Cusco to Santorini and Paris to Mexico City. DrinkTV is also announcing that Four Sheets season 2 has been greenlit and will air in 2019 exclusively on the network.”
“When we saw what Zane delivered in Season 1 of Four Sheets, it was a no-brainer to do more episodes,” said DrinkTV Co-founder and General Manager Chris Burke. “We’re excited for the fans—ourselves among them—to see where the adventures lead next.”
Other shows on the network include The BrewDog Show, with Scottish brewers James Watt and Martin Dickie brewing collaboration beers around the world with some of the top names in brewing, Throwback Trivia, an 80s/90s themed bar trivia show fronted by legendary game show host Marc Summers, new episodes of The Nerdy Bartender with geek culture devotee and fan favorite Stacey Roy, and a range of cocktail, wine and beer programming from around the world.
Additionally, the network has greenlit Nightcap with Zane Lamprey, a late-night talk show where Lamprey will go one-on-one with celebrity guests in his natural habitat: at the bar (shot on-location in some of the most iconic and unique drinking establishments in Los Angeles). Nightcap with Zane Lampreywill debut in spring 2019.
“I’m ecstatic to be a part of DrinkTV and I’m confident subscribers will dig the new shows!” says Lamprey. “DrinkTV is a place for all of us drink lovers to come together to celebrate what we love—cold beverages and good times.”
The streaming network is available at DrinkTV.com, Roku, AppleTV, iOS and Android devices (with Amazon Fire coming soon). For $2.99/month or $29.99/year, subscribers will have access to exclusive content and various programming celebrating all the best in drinks culture, including brand new projects.
