VUBIQUITY SIGNS SVOD DEAL WITH AWESOMENESSTV TO BRING MILLENNIAL AND GENERATION Z CONTENT TO INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS

Los Angeles, CA (December 17, 2015) — VUBIQUITY, a global provider of premium content services, has signed an international SVOD distribution deal with AwesomenessTV, a leading media company serving the global Generation Z audience, for the Middle East, Africa, South Eastern Europe and Latin America (excluding Brazil).

This deal significantly extends VUBIQUITY’s content portfolio to include more next-generation and genre-specific programs for millennials and members of Generation Z, enabling VUBIQUITY’s network of global partners to appeal to younger, digital-first audiences.

The deal includes AwesomenessTV’s popular series, such as Fifth Harmony Takeover, DIY or DI-Don’t!, Hey Guys, It’s Meg!, Makeup Mythbusters, Amanda Steele’s The Social Life, Cheerhab, My Dream Quinceañera, and IMO. Approximately 130 hours of content will be accessible via VUBIQUITY-powered SVOD platforms in many of the countries covered by the deal.

AwesomenessTV is a multi-platform media company owned by DreamWorks and Hearst Corporation, the latter of which has a 25 percent interest. Included under the AwesomenessTV banner are AwesomenessTV, a leading destination for original programming serving the global Gen Z audience and the ATV Network, a community based MCN with over 90,000 channels.

VUBIQUITY is a leading global provider of premium content services, which operates in North America, Europe and the emerging markets. Their long-standing relationships with all the major content providers allows VUBIQUITY to license, manage and deliver thousands of hours of high-quality premium content to video distributors, such as cable, satellite, telecoms, wireless and OTT providers.
