Viewster Now Among comScore's Top 50 U.S. Video Properties

Subscription-Free Site Hits Its New Monthly Record for VOD Plays as 198.6 Million Videos Are Watched by Over Eight Million Americans in February

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 21, 2013) -  Viewster Media, a leading free service for 'on demand' movies and TV series, has been named one of the Top 50 online video properties in the United States, according to comScore, a leader in measuring the digital world. The service also recorded the most monthly views on its network, with nearly 200 million total in the short month of February.

It puts Viewster Media among the most popular VOD providers in comScore's rankings as VOD sites continue to grow in popularity among cord-cutters, who are opting for time-shifted viewing online instead of scheduled TV. "Viewster is proud to join the ranks of the Top 50 online video properties in the United States, while significantly increasing our views month-to-month," said Viewster CEO Kai Henniges. "Given our continued push toward growing the Viewster brand and increasing our content offerings, as well as increased cord-cutting and VOD discovery among U.S. audiences, we expect to see even more growth throughout the year."

For the month of February, Viewster Media's network of sites and syndication partners delivered 198.6 million videos, an increase of 20% from January*, to some 8.3 million young viewers in the United States to women and men likewise. This places Viewster as number 32 in the U.S. for total video views and number 46 in total unique viewers. The recent comScore report demonstrates that Viewster Media is surpassing a number of popular and traditional video sites.

"Even with prominent alternatives, American audiences are still finding a way to gravitate to our platform," added Henniges. "Not only does Viewster have content that's competitive with other services, featuring thousands of films and television series, but we offer a no-hassle approach for people across the globe to find great videos, television shows and movies without paying a single cent in subscription fees."
