Reaching 20M unique users throughout European network, Viewster claims title of top ad-supported VOD platform for European series
Zurich, Switzerland- November 15, 2013- Viewster (http://www.viewster.com), the free platform for Video on Demand has today announced reaching the 20M mark in unique users* within its European network, making Viewster the leading VOD platform for European series. Headquartered in Zurich, with additional offices in London, Berlin and Kiev, the ad-supported VOD service offers its audience over 12,000 titles for free. Viewster’s availability stretches to all European countries with a wide range of premium content, paving the way for cord cutters who have shifted away from traditional, linear TV viewing habits. Viewster’s strongest markets are in the United Kingdom and Germany: in the UK Viewster ranks 16th in video properties according to comScore (September 2013). In Germany, AGOF testifies Viewster’s growth of 60% in the last quarter, listing Viewster in the Top 50 of available online offerings (October 2013).
“Reaching an audience of 20M unique users has shown us the progressive shift in how premium content is consumed, and we’re excited to reach our next benchmark,” said Viewster CEO and Co-Founder Kai Hanniges. “We have successfully expanded our platform throughout all of Europe and see a huge demand of European, US and international series.”
Henniges has been invited to present the future vision of the Viewster platform at the NOAH Conference in London this week, outlining a long-term strategy to expand its pan-European offerings of high-quality series and movies to an international audience. Viewster constantly scouts premium content for its international audiences, supporting Europe’s popular series and films, making them available in the US, throughout Europe and globally. At MIPCOM 2013, the VOD platform recently announced extensive contributions from BBC programming and other British based productions. In total, Viewster provides users with over 12,000 films and episodes (subject to local availability).
“Providing viewers with an eclectic batch of content, especially programs that would be otherwise hard to find in certain regions, is a main focus of Viewster,” says Hanniges. “As we expand the reach of Viewster to other regions, we aim to add more content and popular series to tailor to our audiences’ preferences in programming.”
