Since its inception in 1998, the JoBlo Movie Network has been catering to movie and TV aficionados across the world and growing every year. In the mindset of continuing to serve their emerging audience, the JoBlo Movie Network YouTube Channel ( was established in 2011, sharing the latest and greatest movie trailers, clips and featurettes with viewers, along with exclusive celebrity interviews, original video creations and Comic Con coverage.

And after less than 4 years of existence and plenty of hard work and relationship building with all of the top movie studios, the JoBlo Movie Network channel recently cracked the 1 million subscribers mark and the 1 billion views mark – a benchmark only 275 other YouTube channels in the world have ever cleared. In fact, only 4 Canadian-based channels have more views than JoBlo.

When asked about this milestone, Paul Shirey, Editor-in-Chief at JoBlo, said: “When you consider that JoBlo himself started this site as a hobby in his parents' garage all those years ago, it’s amazing to see our team of fanboys/fangirls reach this milestone among all of the corporate entities taking over the Net these days. We’ve been able to maintain our independence and street cred for all these years and we believe that our fans sense our true passion and love for all things movies.

That said, we realize that none of this would have been possible without our audience’s support, engagement and sharing of our content, as well as the integral relationships that we’ve built with all of the top Hollywood studios over the past 18 years. We’ve interviewed over 2,500 celebrities since our inception, covered over 100 movie set visits and dozens of film festivals/conventions and we believe that our passion and honesty is what keeps fans coming back for more.”

With the great success of their main Movie Trailers channel, JoBlo recently added other related channels to their YouTube network including one focusing on TV Trailers (, Video Game Trailers ( and Movie Hotties videos channel.“
