New York, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2007
Dailymotion, the world's largest independent video sharing site, and Sí TV, America's first and only television network to target the millions of 18-34-year old Latinos who prefer their entertainment in English, today announced that Sí TV's popular programming will now be available on the Dailymotion site. Additionally, Dailymotion will be the exclusive upload partner for the network's innovative Flow and Tell program. Dailymotion's global reach will extend the Latino-themed network's growing audience, giving fans further opportunities for reviewing, posting, and promoting online media. The two companies will share in advertising revenues generated in connection with the content.
The agreement includes access to comedy, music, lifestyle and talk programming from Sí TV's archived, current and future television broadcasts including the humorous mating game Dating Factory, starring Mario Lopez (Saved By the Bell, Pacific Blue, Animal Planet, Dancing with the Stars) and provocative co-host and former model Carmen Palumbo; music and lifestyle show The Drop, featuring live performances from the biggest names in pop and hip hop along with exclusive celebrity interviews and comedy programs such as Unacceptable Behavior and the Latino Laugh Festival: The Show.
Dailymotion will play a pivotal role in production of Sí TV's Flow and Tell, which takes self expression to the next level by giving everyday people limitless opportunity to say whatever's on their mind. Both Dailymotion users and broadcast viewers will be invited to contribute original content by uploading their deepest thoughts, angriest rants, most personal secrets, funniest jokes, and other user-generated videos to Dailymotion's site and a selection will appear on Sí TV's television network.
Sí TV clips will be programmed by Dailymotion's creative managers to appear in the video site's channels including Funny, Arts, Music and TV. The premium content will be included alongside original videos from Dailymotion's MotionMaker program for the creative community. This will enable even higher visibility for both the licensed and MotionMaker content, presenting excellent opportunities for MotionMakers to be "discovered" by audiences around the world.
"We're happy to enter into this relationship with Sí TV, a company that shares our commitment to encouraging creativity, two-way dialogue and freedom of expression," said Mark Zaleski, executive chairman of Dailymotion. "We believe that Sí TV, Dailymotion and our creative community will all benefit greatly from the addition of these new programs."
"Since Sí TV's launch, we have been dedicated to creating and delivering an engaging, interactive experience to our audience," commented Lisa Black, senior vice president, digital media for Sí TV. "We believe this partnership with Dailymotion will not only further that goal, but also allow us to expose entirely new audiences to our unique brand of culturally-relevant programming."
