Viewster Media, a subscription-free service offering ‘on demand’ movies and TV series for free or a small fee, has been named as a Top 20 Online Video Property in the UK for the first time, according to comScore, a specialist in measuring the digital world.
The comScore Video Metrix for February 2013 places Viewster Media at number 20 in its Top 20 list, with 3.7 million UK viewers watching more than 50 million films or TV shows using Viewster’s subscription-free network of sites and syndication partners. This puts Viewster Media above a host of popular video sites including DailyMotion – the world’s second largest video-sharing website – which entertained 3.5 million viewers in the UK last month.
“Month-after-month we’re seeing impressive growth in the UK and worldwide as more consumers choose to watch films and TV shows on demand. Last year we served up over a billion videos in 120 countries, representing a 700 per cent increase on 2011 and proving that consumers want an alternative to pricey pay-to-view or subscription services,” said Kai Henniges, CEO at Viewster. “We’re pulling out all the stops in 2013 as we drive growth worldwide with a raft of exciting new partnerships, so being listed as one of the UK’s top 20 video properties is a great start to the year for us.”
