ZUUS MEDIA is launching a music video multi-channel network with reach across TV, web, connected TV and mobile devices. In collaboration with major labels and over 75 independents, ZUUS will give music fans an expertly curated, lean-back viewing experience.
Currently in public beta, ZUUS will offer 100+ digital channels spanning a wide variety of music genres and four linear, genre-specific TV channels. Also coming soon, expect to see artist-curated channels, festival partnerships, individual artist pages, mood channels, and more. Distribution on ZUUS Country and Latin has already grown to 50 million combined households. ZUUS plans to round out its linear TV offering with two more channels: ZUUS Hits (Pop & Rock) and ZUUS Hip-Hop and R&B, both slated for a Q3 launch.
"ZUUS fills the void left in the landscape when music channels migrated to reality content," ZUUS Co-Founder/CEO STEVE GOLDSTEIN said. "There is a massive demand for music video content but a lack of destinations for people to sit back and enjoy it. We're excited to introduce ZUUS to the marketplace; there's nothing out there like it."
"The music video has become a lost art, but remains a prized element of an artist's expression," GLASSNOTE RECORDS Pres. DANIEL GLASS said. "Thanks to ZUUS, music fans can once again enjoy the visual creativity of their favorite artists. Labels recognize the demand for music videos by today's biggest artists, and acknowledge the gap in the current marketplace for a compelling visual means by which to introduce viewers to new, emerging artists. ZUUS is the perfect platform for discovery."
