UnchainedTV & Earthstream Join Forces: Streaming to Save the Planet
You can watch UnChainedTV on your television screen using Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV or Android TV device.
UnchainedTV teams up with Earthstream to fast track nature documentaries to a global audience hungry for solutions to the climate crisis.
HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 9, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — The clock is ticking for wild animals losing their habitats at an alarming rate. The UN Secretary-General recently warned that we are “brutalizing biodiversity” and “digging our own graves” in the process. But, mass change often comes down to individuals becoming inspired to behave differently. So, now, UnchainedTV is collaborating with Earthstream to make life-changing wildlife documentaries available to streaming TV viewers around the world.
From individual films, like the award-winning Lion Ark, by Animal Defenders International, to the extraordinary video series provided by Friends of Bonobos, these movies show people around the world the breathtaking beauty, intelligence and sensitivity of wild animals and why we must all work to save them.
â€œWe are pleased to announce that weâ€™ve secured content licensing deals for hundreds of our documentaries and shorts so that they can now stream on UnchainedTV for free,â€� said Earthstream co-founder Craig Swanson, adding, â€œWe want to thank all of the film rights holders for continuing this journey with us to create awareness about the plight of animals and our planet.â€�
â€œI am so grateful to Earthstream and the filmmakers and activists involved in creating these unique and compelling videos,â€� said UnchainedTV founder and managing editor Jane Velez-Mitchell, adding, â€œEverybody needs to watch them, if we are to save this planet, and thatâ€™s our mission.â€�
EarthStream spent over a year partnering with non-profit organizations, streaming hundreds of hours of content related to animals, climate change, and advocacy. They donated tens of thousands of dollars from subscription revenues to various groups directly making change.
â€œWe need to show people what is at stake in this battle to save the planet, said Velez-Mitchell. â€œThe statistics on biodiversity loss are gut-wrenching. The UN reports, â€˜Up toÂ one million speciesÂ are threatened with extinction, many within decades.â€™ But, when people connect with an individual ape or lion or dolphin, that hits them in their heart. Then, they take action.â€�
UnchainedTV is going all out to showcase its new content. An UnchainedTV.com news release announcing the networkâ€™s streaming of the Big Cat Rescue series, featuring the work of Carole Baskin of Netflixâ€™s Tiger King fame, resulted in over a hundred press inquiries. Baskin, her family, and her team of supporters, were crucial in helping to pass the Big Cat Public Safety Act, which was signed into law by President Biden in December of 2022. It bans lion and tiger petting zoos and phases out private pet ownership of big cats with the goal of stopping the exploitation of these animals who are also being decimated in the wild.
With this change in direction, the founders of EarthStream are venturing into mobile veterinary care, pioneering new ways of delivering care that will allow them to help more animals directly across the United States.
