Viewster breaks into top rankings in the US and UK
Ad Funded VOD provider played 250 million videos to over 12 million Americans and Brits in February
Viewster Media has for the first time been listed in comScore's Video Metrix report, ranking in the Top 50 in the US and Top 20 in the UK with 8.3 million and 3.7 million unique visitors, respectively, in February. Globally, Viewster reaches 29 million unique visitors in February, according to internal numbers.*
In the month of February, Viewster Media's network of sites and syndication partners delivered 198.6 million videos in the US and 50.9 million videos in the UK. The recent comScore report puts Viewster Media among the most popular VOD providers as VOD sites continue to grow in popularity among cord-cutters, who are opting for on-demand entertainment instead of scheduled TV.
"Viewster is proud to join the ranks of the Top 50 online video properties in the US and Top 20 in the UK, while significantly increasing our views month-to-month" said Viewster CEO Kai Henniges. "Even with prominent alternatives, audiences are still finding a way to gravitate to our cross-device offering of curated movies and TV series. At the same time, advertisers follow the audience and are attracted by our premium, brand-safe environment for their video campaigns."
The network's traffic numbers from Germany and Australia will also soon be third-party audited by the leading institutions AGOF (for Germany) and Nielsen, delivering real-time targeting options to its customers.
