/ Jun 17, 2014

Zoomin.TV, one of the largest MCNs in Europe with more than 8,000 channels, has crossed the Atlantic.

As part of the expansion, Zoomin.TV welcomes online video veteran Chris Young, co-founder of digital studio DBG, which was acquired by Alloy Digital in 2013. Young is joining the MCN’s board directors.

Additionally, the company says it plans to bring on five-to-six new employees for its recently opened offices in New York and Miami. Overall, Zoomin.TV plans to add 25 employees in the coming 12-to-18 months.

The company says it’s adding roughly 500 channels to its network every month.

As a network, Zoomin.TV isn’t reliant on YouTube. The company says it has an off-YouTube production and distribution business, which delivers more than 400 pieces of video content (across 14 languages) to more than 2,000 websites. Its publishing partners reside in 35 countries across Europe, Asia, and Latin America, with a monthly unique audience of 278 million.

In the US, Zoomin.TV partners include Yahoo, MSN, and AOL. The company recently made a deal with The Washington Post, announcing an exclusive license agreement that makes Zoomin.TV the only online platform in Europe and Latin America for videos produced by the news outlet. The MCN further seeks distribution partners in the US, hoping to gain more partnerships like the one with the Post.

Zoomin.TV’s headquarters reside in Amsterdam, with other international offices in Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Brussels, Milan, London, Buenos Aires, Toronto, Sao Paulo, and Hamburg.
