MTV Networks Unveils Targeted Online Syndication Strategy, Delivering the Most Diverse Line-Up of Video Content through First-Class Partners

Dailymotion, GoFish, imeem, MeeVee and Veoh to Distribute Content from COMEDY CENTRAL, MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, CMT, Logo, The N, Spike TV, AtomFilms and GameTrailers

New Agreements Follow Recently Announced Syndication Partnerships with AOL, Bebo, Comcast's Fancast, Joost and MSN

NEW YORK, Jan. 8 -- MTV Networks, a unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), today unveiled its targeted online syndication strategy, announcing partnerships with select, first-class online video sites to deliver a vast library of short and long-form video content from MTVN's popular music, kids and family, comedy and pop-culture brands. These sites include Dailymotion, GoFish (OTC Bulletin Board: GOFH.OB), imeem, MeeVee and Veoh, and join AOL, Bebo, Comcast's Fancast, Joost and MSN to comprise MTVN's portfolio of online syndication partners.

"We believe in a targeted approach to online video syndication, which means working with select partners who value our content and have the ability to build deep and interactive experiences around it," said Greg Clayman, Executive Vice President, Digital Distribution and Business Development, MTVN. "By partnering with these premium online video destinations, we're giving our audiences even more opportunities to interact with our content and each other online, while increasing engagement with our brands and driving viewership back to our core linear channels and Web properties. We are delighted to be in business with partners who respect the value of our content and are proactive about protecting it from piracy."

MTVN's targeted online syndication strategy will enable the company to build dynamic relationships with its partners across the globe and work closely with them to enhance their content offerings. The company will collaborate with each site to engage users, co-market and optimize MTVN's programming line-up, and use filtering technologies to ensure copyright protection. All of MTVN's partner sites will carry individual channels for each participating MTVN brand, streaming ad-supported video clips free to the consumer. Like MTVN's own branded websites, the partner sites will enable global audiences to embed MTVN clips on their own blogs, social networking pages or websites.

The new agreements strengthen MTVN's position as the world's largest provider of diverse programming on-air, online and on mobile spanning nearly every demographic from kids and teens, to young adults, men, boomer and LGBT audiences. Beginning in the coming weeks, audiences across Dailymotion, GoFish, imeem, MeeVee and Veoh will be able to view video from COMEDY CENTRAL, MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, CMT, Logo, The N, Spike TV, AtomFilms and GameTrailers, including show clips from COMEDY CENTRAL's Emmy and Peabody-Award winning "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," MTV's "The Hills," Nickelodeon's "iCarly," "VH1's "The Salt-N-Pepa Show," and much more.
