CollegeHumor (www.collegehumor.com), the definitive source for irreverent student humor and leading online source of original comedy videos, today announced that it will bring its high-quality CHTV original videos to Joost(TM) (www.joost.com), the world's first broadcast-quality Internet television service.
CollegeHumor's CHTV original videos will be made available on Joost through the newly launched "CHTV: CollegeHumor Original Videos" Joost channel (http://joost.com/3020001). Initial programming includes a collection of CollegeHumor's most popular original series, including "Street Fighter: The Later Years," "The Michael Showalter Showalter," "Prank War," and "Hardly Working." Additionally, CollegeHumor will provide hit video satires "Brohemian Rhapsody," "Minesweeper: The Movie," and "Facebook Off." Moving forward, as CollegeHumor continues to launch new original videos the company will continue to make them available to Joost viewers through the CHTV Joost channel.
"We are excited to be partnering with Joost to launch the CollegeHumor channel because it gives us an opportunity to introduce our original videos to a new, savvy audience," said Ricky Van Veen, Co-Founder and Editor-In-Chief of CollegeHumor. "Joost's high quality, full screen platform is one of the few places where our high definition widescreen originals can look as good as they do on CollegeHumor.com."
Yvette Alberdingk Thijm, executive vice president of content strategy and acquisition for Joost, said, "CollegeHumor is a pioneer in online video entertainment, and a perfect partner for Joost. Their shows — which are written and produced specifically for web audiences — are hysterical, and because of their commitment to high production values, they look great on Joost."
