Hearst acquires stake in AwesomenessTV
“Few companies have built the global audience of millennial females as quickly as AwesomenessTV,” said Steven R. Swartz, president and CEO of Hearst Corporation. “For us, it’s very important to make a bet on the future of how content is created. Together, in partnership with DreamWorks, we see great opportunity in supporting the consumer media franchise that AwesomenessTV continues to build.”
Hearst and DreamWorks plan to work together to support ATV’s efforts to enter into new content channels, broaden its audience and expand its geographic reach. Under the agreement, ATV will gain immediate access to Hearst’s subscription video on demand (SVOD) technology, which will rapidly accelerate ATV’s ability to offer content directly to consumers across all types of formats.
