Two New Media Studios Break 100M Views


Upstart new media studios Next New Networks and Revision3 each surpassed 100 million video plays in 2007.

On its blog, Next New Networks provided a timeline and rough breakdown of how its individual shows performed. Next New Network’s Channel Frederator had a big year, fueled in part by The Meth Minute’s breakout hit Internet People, which has pulled in 2.5 million views on YouTube alone since September. EPIC-FU (previously JETSET), Indy Mogul and Fast Lane Daily also attracted millions.

Revision3 (which produces the GigaOM Show), meanwhile, said it delivered more than 25 million shows and more than 103 million clips, according to a press release.

Keeping in mind that The Biggest Loser recently drew more than 10 million people to oldteevee on a single night, it’s not time to put a bullet in the back of your box quite yet, but these new media numbers are encouraging. Maybe the strong start from both studios can attract some writing talent currently on strike and develop shows that consists of more than just a camera, a green screen and a rundown of tech/pop culture news.

Congrats to Rev3, someday original broadband shows will reach the same numbers as the smaller cable outlets. We at MediaZone are looking for original shows to launch on our platform. We are currently the leader in broadband sports content and are expanding into general entertainment content, especially thru short form and original shows. If anybody has original shows that are looking for a home, please email me at


As someone that is trying to be creative content to the little screen that doesn’t consist of “…just a camera, a green screen and a rundown of tech/pop culture news” I’d love to see tihs open.

“Lutz and Balls, Paranormal Investigators” is a web based, situation comedy series that is currently looking for a home but the only thing getting put on the web these days seems to be the above tech/pop culture news.

Of course the costs of a scripted 30 minute (let alone hour) is just not as cheap as three people standing against a screen or sitting on a couch… but we’re willing to work within your budget.

Congrats to Rev3. They are doing good work and deserve everything they get. They are building a real IPTV network over there with strong content and good personalities.
