GoDigital Media Group Adds Premium Film and Television Content to YouTube

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - January 21, 2010) - GoDigital Media Group, a leading entertainment media distribution and marketing company, announced today that they have initiated delivery of over 800 titles of film & television content to the company's channels on YouTube.

YouTube's offering allows premium content partners to stream full-length films and television shows in exchange for ad-supported revenue. The move to full-length content comes as YouTube aims to compete with the Hulu's ever-growing user base and high-caliber content.

"We're thrilled to be a part of YouTube's new premium content offering," said GoDigital's CMO and co-founder Logan Mulvey. "The move to full-length makes a lot of sense for YouTube, and being that it is such a brand name, made it easy for us jump on board immediately."

GoDigital's delivery to YouTube includes selected feature films and television shows from well-known distributors Echo Bridge Entertainment and Vanguard Cinema. To facilitate the large batch delivery, GoDigital will be using a digital supply chain delivery and management platform called ContentBridge. GoDigital's Director of Digital Distribution Mike Rubsamen will be heading up the delivery process.

"The ability for content owners to rapidly monetize catalogs of episodic and feature length content in a socially rich marketplace such as YouTube is very powerful," said Rubsamen. "Scalability has become increasingly important in a digital environment and, without ContentBridge automating the delivery process, this endeavor might not be possible."

GoDigital's expertise includes distribution of feature film, television, and music content to hundreds of entertainment retailers including Netflix, iTunes, Hulu, and CinemaNow. Upcoming film releases include "Nickel Children" starring Tom Sizemore ("Saving Private Ryan") and Jeremy Sisto ("Law & Order"), as well as "Chasing Ghosts" starring Michael Madsen ("Kill Bill") and Academy Award nominee Gary Busey ("The Firm"). On the television side, GoDigital will be distributing multiple seasons of the ESPN series "American Dragster."
