San Francisco, CA – September 4, 2008 – The search for the next “Seinfeld” of web video is now complete. In a poll of TVWeek readers, Revision3, the TV network for the Internet generation, is expected to be the web-video studio to launch the next Internet mega-hit. Selected by TVWeek to be one of five top web networks included in the poll, Revision3 received top billing from consumers—capturing 63 percent of the votes. The results of the poll were made public on TVWeek.com at http://www.tvweek.com/news/2008/08/searching_for_web_videos_seinf.php.
TVWeek marks Revision3 as one of the “fast-moving web studios that are pumping out programs that are drawing advertisers and eyeballs online today.” TVWeek’s profile of Revision3 notes that its programs are consistently well-written and tightly produced with a strong network that is good at developing its own shows and also partnering with existing web series, such as “Epic Fu” and “Wine Library TV.” TVWeek appreciates that Revision3 “has its pulse on the early-adopter audience in web video” and believes “Martin Sargent is the greatest comedic talent on the web.”
“We are thrilled to be recognized by TVWeek as one of the top five Web video studios out there, and even more excited to be acknowledged by TV Week’s readers as tops out of such a great group of companies,” said Jim Louderback, CEO, Revision3. “Revision3 continues to produce high-quality shows and episodes for the Web on a daily basis – this recognition proves that our viewers are more enthusiastic about our shows than ever.”
In addition, TVWeek cites Revision3’s strong advertisers, including Bank of America, GoDaddy, Virgin America, eMusic, Netflix, U.S. Air Force, Dr. Pepper, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft Zune, Anheuser-Busch, CNN, Southern Comfort, Dolby and Verizon, and Hollywood connections as other key reasons for being named to the list.
Revision3 is the first media company that gets it. Born from the Internet, Revision3 is a TV network for the web, creating and producing shows for a new audience: passionate fans who want to watch shows about technology, modern culture and music that entertain, educate and help to expand their life experiences.
The company was founded in 2005 by technology visionaries Kevin Rose, Jay Adelson and David Prager, because they couldn’t find anything they wanted to watch on traditional television. The company is now led by Internet TV pioneer Jim Louderback. With more than 35 million downloads to date (and 4.2 million per month), Revision3’s programs can be found everywhere from Revision3 to a wide range of platforms, including Apple iTunes, Hulu, DivX, YouTube and PyroTV. Shows can be watched on any device, from a cell phone to an Apple Nano, on a computer or a TV.
