NanoTech Entertainment, a pioneer in bringing state-of-the-art television experiences to consumers, announced today that it has entered into an exclusive partnership with Iron Dragon Productions. The first release of the partnership will be the Iron Dragon TV channel scheduled to launch in September 2014. Iron Dragon TV will feature original content plus hundreds of classic action films including Martial Arts classics such as the IP Man series, The King of Fighters, Shaolin and 1911 staring Kung Fu legend Jackie Chan.
4K Studios, a NanoTech subsidiary, will use the NanoFlix IPTV/OTT technology to deliver the Iron Dragon TV channel on a variety of devices including Roku, SmartTVs, iOS phones and tablets, Android phones and tablets as well as desktop computers.
“Martial Arts is at an all-time high in popularity, thanks in part to the global success of the UFC,” said Janell Smith, founder of Iron Dragon Studios’ and martial arts expert. “NanoTech has a great track record and has been doing business with the Martial Arts community, allowing them to leverage their technical expertise to deliver the worlds’ greatest Martial Arts network. NanoTech’s state of the art technology will allow us to quickly launch this channel, making it available to millions of customers this year.”
“We are very excited about continuing to add new networks like Iron Dragon TV, leveraging our investment in technology and infrastructure,” said Aaron Taylor, NanoTech’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “Janell and her team are bringing an awesome collection of content to this channel. In addition, we are already working on several other projects including bringing original Iron Dragon content in digital 4K Ultra HD to the UltraFlix™ network.”
