TORONTO, ON, June 16, 2016 – Today Rumble, one of the world’s fastest-growing open video platforms, announced a deal with Studio71, the digital entertainment company and multichannel network of the ProSiebenSat.1 Group, to bring new content to the Rumble platform. The deal brings content from over 100 top YouTube creators to Rumble’s full-stack video platform. Studio71’s roster of creators includes Epic Meal Time (7M subscribers), Matthew Santoro (5.4M subscribers), Kathleen Lights (2.2M subscribers), and The Dudesons (2.3M subscribers).
“Rumble is a creator-centric platform, and our main goal has always been to help video creators increase distribution and monetize their videos,” said Chris Pavlovski, CEO, Rumble. “This content deal with Studio71 shows that creators want to go beyond the YouTube ecosystem and find additional audiences – and additional revenue streams – for their video content.”
Rumble allows video creators to host, share, monetize and distribute their video content from one centralized account. YouTube creators that bring their audience to Rumble typically earn up to five times more per view, and the platform gives them additional ways to monetize their views on publisher sites using a customized Rumble video player. The addition of content from over 100 new channels to Rumble’s platform also creates new revenue streams for publishers, who can embed Rumble’s player on their own blogs, websites, and social channels.
“We work with the world’s best talent at Studio71, and we will continue to partner with leading platforms to distribute premium content to their audiences around the world,” said Adam Boorstin, EVP of Global Digital Distribution, Studio71. “We’re looking forward to working with Rumble to allow our creators to continue building on the success they have achieved so far,” added Sean Kilbane, Director of Global Digital Distribution, Studio71.
Rumble has experienced exponential growth since 2015, and entered comScore’s top 100 content video ranking in February for the first time, jumping from #47 to #41 in March. Based on comScore’s numbers, in the U.S. Rumble’s platform generated 9.767M unique viewers alone on mobile and desktop. In addition to surpassing BuzzFeed by nearly 500,000 visitors, Rumble also outranked Amazon and Vox Media. Studio71 has also experienced explosive growth, and its creators currently generate 5 billion views per month.
