The service is from European producer and distributor Off The Fence (OTF) and was first revealed at the end of 2018.

The digital platform and mobile app will offer documentaries, original content and live streaming, and is aimed at facilitating awareness and action. Viewers will be able to stream and download hours of video at any time, and on any device, for free.

Users will also be able to interact during shows by giving support to leading charities around the world.

WaterBear Network CEO Ellen Windemuth said: “We are excited about WaterBear’s ability to encourage people to not just watch, but actually interact with the causes they care about. The first network of its kind, we have the chance to be at the forefront of the most pressing issues of our time – showcasing the work being done to protect our earth boundaries and human rights, and empowering us to take direct action to shape a better future for our fragile planet.”

WaterBear already has 65 non-profit partners on board, from some of the biggest environmental NGOs in the world to a network of local, grass-roots organisations.

It is backed by OTF parent ZDF Enterprises, OTF and a group of impact-focused investors.
