The list of upcoming Internet subscription video sites keeps getting longer.

Film studio Lionsgate and entertainment firm Tribeca Enterprises have teamed up to create an online streaming video service, the companies said on Monday.

The on-demand service, which is expected to launch in the first half of next year, will include movies from Lionsgate and Tribeca, as well as titles from other companies. Lionsgate and Tribeca did not say what they will charge subscribers.

This is the latest in a flurry of announcements in the Internet video landscape. Last week, Time Warner Inc.'s pay-TV network HBO said it will launch a streaming service for people who don’t pay for a cable or satellite TV package.

CBS has said it will launch an Internet video offering that will cost $5.99 a month.

Lionsgate, the company behind the “Hunger Games” movies, and Tribeca, which runs the Tribeca Film Festival, plan to call their service Tribeca Short List. The new offering will be run from New York.

“Tribeca Short List aims to be a service where you can see films you never got to watch, forgot to watch, and want to watch,” Jane Rosenthal, Tribeca Enterprises’ chief executive, said in a statement.
