Davis, California (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Yoursphere Media, Inc. today announced its exclusive partnership with Kabillion, the Emmy Award-winning network that offers high-quality animated and live-action programming oriented to youth through its broadband and Video on Demand (VOD) platforms. Yoursphere Media provides family and youth-oriented social media destinations and privacy practices for brands, nonprofits and corporations. The partnership delivers Yoursphere’s enhanced social network to the 40 million households Kabillion serves, enhancing the network’s multi-platform entertainment brand with Yoursphere’s unique social online experience.
Kabillion is the latest brand to align with Yoursphere in providing their members an age- and content-appropriate social networking experience that complies with the Children's Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA). Yoursphere offers youth-focused companies the ability to provide their own labeled social networks without brands having to invest in the expense or oversight such compliance requires.
Kabillion’s youth audiences requested a social component to the network, and only Yoursphere met Kabillion’s requirements for online safety and privacy standards. Yoursphere provides kids the activities they love to do -- chat with friends, share interests, post videos, play games, win prizes and more – in an environment that respects privacy, educates its community about online safety, cyberbullying and other critical issues today’s kids face.
“This partnership reinforces Yoursphere’s strategy of offering support to strong brands, maximizing our distribution on an expanded basis, and working with the highest quality partners and affiliates to create long-term value,” said Lee Rees, Yoursphere Media’s Chairman and CEO. “Kabillion’s dynamic management team has a track record of aligning with respected brands that entertain and encourage creativity. Our combined assets offer a compelling platform for building a trusted children’s destination that engages a growing audience.”
Kabillion, part of the MoonScoop Group, has studios that create animation and cartoon series like Pet Alien and Code Lyoko. MoonScoop Group also owns the animation studio Mike Young Productions, based in Los Angeles. Kabillion offers programming as both Video On Demand (VOD) and community content for broadcast via digital cable, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), and mobile phones. Kabillion is available as a free video on-demand channel in more than 50% of U.S. digital cable households, as well as its free online broadband site (Kabillion.com).
Yoursphere Media invites other youth-focused organizations to follow Kabillion’s lead in reaching their audiences through a branded “social media solution” provided on the Yoursphere network. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
