Dutch content platform Makers Channel has officially launches in the UK.
Free and creatively independent, Makers Channel has been described as a mix of Youtube and Netflix. Featuring handpicked videos and webisodes from content makers around the world plus original Makers Channel series starring fan-favourites from Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat etc. the platform offers a streamlined experience for viewers who like to watch online comntent without the noise of constant low quality content.
Makers Channel UK is run by Eline van der Velden who commented: “I’ve been making viral content for years – my own show Miss Holland has been watched millions of time around the world – and as a web series fan myself, I know when something bombs. With so many platforms allowing anyone to upload their videos, the amount of irrelevant content you have to trawl through to find something genuinely great is too much for most people. At Makers Channel we don’t let just anyone upload – we hand pick everything, so when you see the Makers Channel player, you know you’re getting the best online content delivered to you.”
