Revision3, the TV network for the Internet generation, today announced that it will begin syndicating its entire content catalog of shows to blip.tv. Beginning today, popular Web shows including The Digg Reel, popSiren and Tekzilla will be viewable on blip.tv and throughout the blip.tv distribution network. The shows can also be viewed at Revision3.com and on each show's individual site.
Both Revision3 and blip.tv are focused on bringing passionate and committed audiences high quality original programming. Blip.tv's distribution technology allows content partners to reach millions of viewers with built-in syndication to AOL Video, Yahoo Video, Twitter, MSN Video, Google Video and much more. Their user-friendly player design also makes it easy for audiences to download and share video content.
Web entertainment is about unique content, reach and the flexibility to use multiple devices,”said Jim Louderback, CEO of Revision3."People want to watch our shows whenever and wherever they'd like. Blip.tv stands out in terms of player design, distribution technology and the audience it allows us to tap into. Our syndication partnership with blip.tv helps us move toward a level of ubiquity that is extremely important to us.
More than a dozen Revision3-produced shows will be made available. Taking advantage of the open nature of blip.tv's platform, Revision3 will make each show accessible in multiple formats ranging from Flash to Quicktime to DivX to 3gp for cell phones.
We're very pleased to expand our relationship with Revision3,”said blip.tv co-founder and COO Dina Kaplan”
They're creating exactly the type of content that inspired us to build blip.tv in the first place – addictive, well-produced shows with new episodes that are released on a regular schedule. We see this partnership between two of the Internet's leading television networks as a no-brainer and we're looking forward to further expanding our relationship with Revision3 in the future.”
In November 2007 Revision3 and blip.tv announced a cross-promotional partnership that called for top blip.tv shows to carry post-roll ads promoting Revision3 shows, and vice versa. The agreement has led to significant growth in viewership for the shows involved and is still in effect.
