YouTube Signs Independent Studio to Distribution Deal

Posted Fri Apr 15, 2011 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

GoDigital Media Group has signed with YouTube for both movies and television shows.

YouTube has, for the past year, been working hard to become a more legitimate site to visit when looking for movies and television. One of the big pushes recently has been towards original content, and the new deal helps YouTube meet that goal.

Independent studio GoDigital is set to supply YouTube with around 2,000 hours of programming, which is a good step forward for YouTube, and could be beneficial to GoDigital as well.

GoDigital president Logan Mulvey says that YouTube is a natural move for them. "The move makes a lot of sense in the evolution of content distribution," he says."
