“American adults prefer original digital video content to news, sports and daytime programming on television, and they like it almost as much as they do primetime TV, according to a previously released report from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (http://www.iab.net/) (IAB) and GfK (http://www.gfk.com/Pages/default.aspx),” Chief Executive Officer of Beta Music Group, Inc. “Some 22% of American adults now watch original digital video content each month, bringing the monthly audience size to 52 million—a 15% increase since 2013—the study found. Watching original online video content is particularly popular with younger adults age 18-34 (39% do so) and males (25% do so). Younger viewers and men are also more likely to watch other digital streaming video types, such as TV programs online and amateur videos.”
"The executives of Sideshow Entertainment have previously produced approximately 370 television shows and 5,000 digital media broadcasts and their expertise in developing original programing for on-line and on-air audiences is part of our strategy to generate new revenue streams and increase value for our shareholders," stated Mr. Ennis. "This is another step in our mission to be a dynamic digital media company from a near-term and long-term perspective. We forecast the VLife digital series and future Sideshow TV original online programming will grow new audiences in relation with our Viewpon digital network in creating great content engaging small businesses to their clients."
"Sideshow TV is planning to stand apart from other online networks by launching the VLife with previously announced U-Save digital streams of largely original owned content as well as commercials of Viewpon’s small businesses clients in their local community," stated Mr. Ennis. "Sideshow TV will provide a transformative lens through which viewers can learn how to save money and see inspiration and wonders within their community via a digital series with top hosts online programs leveraging other Viewpon web properties."
