Los Angeles (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
SWIG MEDIA announced the signing of a content partnership with CelebTV, the producers of the number one entertainment property online, as rated by comScore Video Metrix. Ivan Gulas, CEO of SWIG stated that "we feel honored by the formation of a partnership with a one of the best known video content brands built online, and very pleased to make CelebTV Style, CelebTV Studio, CelebTV Wire, CelebTV Fit, and CelebTV Latino, all short-format Channels, available to our viewers on SWIG.TV globally. These channels will further expand SWIG.TV's short-form programming, which is the most popular content format on mobile devices globally.
Gulas noted that “it is our impression that watching videos on mobile devices is increasing dramatically throughout the day, but likely still peaks before noon, while videos on desktops peaks midday and the living room TVs dominate the evening hours. At SWIG, we are committed not only to reach every device with a video screen, but also to include programming which we feel people tend to watch most on specific devices".
The five new channels produced by celebTV will be available shortly on SWIG.TV globally. Additionally, it was announced that a Premium HD CelebTV Channel will also be included on SwigFlix, the Company’s Premium Global Entertainment Network, which is scheduled to launch very shortly. “We are excited for our partnership with SWIG.” stated Brian Graybill, President of CelebTV. “SWIG’s technology enables CelebTV to continue extending the reach of our award-winning content across more platforms and more countries.”
SwigFlix, the Company’s Premium Global Entertainment Network, in contrast to SWIG.TV, will only feature commercial free, HD Channels, Special Events and Feature Films.
