The growth of our service recently has surprised even us and we’ve just added significantly increased server capacity which will benefit users of our embeddable players.

The launch of a new, improved style of embeddable player has resonated with our users and we’re now seeing 3 years of viewing every single day. That’s more than MTV in the UK, More4+1 or even Sky Sports 3!

MyDamnChannelWe are excited to announce two superb new additions to our supported sites which are from very different parts of the world (USA and China) with both being extremely popular in their respective countries. The first one is the most excellent MyDamnChannel. The site enables musicians, film producers, performers, comedians and brands to co-produce original series-style content, get it out there to the masses and monetize it. The site has launched some of the most hilarious and popular web comedy series including: the Ikea sponsored Easy to Assemble which stars SNL alumni Illeana Douglas as she tries to leave her Hollywood past behind and lead a normal life; You Suck At Photoshop – the cult online series of humour rich Photoshop tutorials; Cookin’ With Coolio – the totally original cookery show with Gangsta’s Paradise rapper Coolio; and the Webby Award winning series Wainy Days. Definitely visit the site to check out their full complement of over 40 brilliant series.
ku6.com
Our second new supported site is the massively popular Chinese video-sharing site Ku6.com. Ku6 has recently reached content cooperation agreements with Sony Pictures Television and another undisclosed Hollywood studio. This is significant because it makes Ku6 the first Chinese local video site to acquire legitimate copyright content from major studios. The deals that were struck enable Ku6 to acquire the internet broadcasting rights in mainland China for several hundreds of Hollywood features and TV episodes. Ku6 is also creating original content programming plus running user-generated advertising. Be sure to check out the vast array of content available at Ku6.com, the cutting edge Chinese video sharing site.

We hope you enjoy these superb new supported sites and please feel free to suggest other sites we should support by dropping us a line at reception@worldtv.com
