HungryFlix.com announced a new content distribution deal with Tempe DVD, a leading distributor of independent horror films. Tempe has provided ten independent films in high resolution 640×480 MPEG4 format to HungryFlix.com for online distribution as digital downloads. All files support playback on Apple TV, fifth generation iPods and on computers running iTunes.

HungryFlix.com CEO Brian Andrews said, “We are thrilled to provide independent producers and filmmakers with online distribution to the Apple TV. Independents now have the power to distribute their content to multiple devices at basically no cost. We feel that the benefits of this new model can not be understated and we look forward to more content partnerships.”

HungryFlix.com has also announced that its online distribution platform is now open to film festivals looking to add digital downloading to their offerings. The web startup will provide all hosting, bandwidth and payment processing for the film festival. The site’s standard profit sharing model in which profits will be split between the content provider and the online distributor will apply.
