I am going slightly off of this blogs usual subject with this post. But as some of you regular readers may know my one love besides wrestling videos is superheroine videos. And there is a new streaming service called The Maiden Network that offers both to you.
Maiden Network which run in the new year with a January 1st launch is a new streaming network, simmilar to Netflix, which focuses on action movies and series with female protagonist. It has a small library so far but shows a lot of promise.
They debuted with the new movie Athena, Goddes of war. A superheroine action film exclusively available on Maiden Network. It is an indy film but if the trailer is any indication they spent some money on it for sure. As it looks awesome.
They also offer a selection of movies. Among them are the movies Blood Slayer and Inara, The Jungle Girl (previously available on Ring Divas) as well as a selection of grindhouse and old cult movies. Such as “Ilsa, She Wold of the SS”, “Wild Women of Wongo” and “Women’s Prison Massacre”.
They also have several series. They include “True Heroines” a series about a trio of 50’s housewives with super powers trying to evade government capture, “Clutch” an adult thriller about a theif avoiding capture from organized crime, the superheroine series “Party Girl” and “Teen Champion” a reality series about Ring Divas champion Cali Danger.
As well as the movies and TV series their service also offers a small number of online superheroine comic books, currently mostly comics from the Golden Age (I.E. pre 1953). Some audio books are also available there.
Membership is $14.95 a month, as well as $9.99 a month with a six month commitment (which is billed as 54.94 every six months).
However, they also offer a membeship for 24.95 a month which includes all the content from their main service in aditon to a fitness and sports section. This section includes online copies of “Maiden Fitness Magazine” but what is probably the best feature of the site (at least to fans of this blog) a selection of Ring Divas PPV’s. It only has 8 so far but these are recent ones from 2014 and feature wrestlers such as Cali Danger, Destiny Dumon and Tessa Blanchard. In addition the 2 episodes produced of “Lingerie Wrestling League” are also available for streaming.
While this is obviously a lot more than Netflix. The movies and TV shows on their site available on Ring Divas alone are a lot more. So if you are a fan, or even just interested in some of the movies or PPV’s you saw on Ring Divas then this would seem like it would be worth checking out.
The service is available on their website and can also be viewed on a Roku streaming device. And I want to say as a Roku owner, with or without the Maiden Network, everyone should consider owning a Roku. I bought one over a year ago and it was without a doubt the best 100 bucks I ever spent.
If viewed on the Roku you can also get a sample of what they offer for free. As they have a free streaming area of their Roku channel. It offers some of their movies and TV series in a live stream pretty much in the same format as a TV station. The streaming channel is obviously limited as you have to be watching it live (no on demand and no pausing, rewinding or fast forwarding. It basically runs like a cable channel) and offers only selected shows that you have to be vieweing at the specific time they air. But I have had no problems with the streaming when I watched it. There are limited commercials, but like network TV that is the price you pay for free programming. And the commercials are very short when they do come on.
The selection so far is fairly limites. While they do boast over 75 hours of videos that obviously is not as many as Netflix or Hulu. But it is an ambitious project which promises more content to be added regularly, and for fans of superheroines, action movies with female leads, or Ring Divas wrestling this definitely looks worth checking out.
