Potsdam, Germany – July 14, 2022 – Wurl, the world leader in powering streaming TV, today announced its agreement with Amogo Networx, a global film network, to launch the company’s new, Free Ad Supported TV (FAST) channels across various CTV platforms including SamsungTV, LG, RakutenTV and Roku. The Wurl-powered FAST channels will distribute and monetize Amogo Networx’s programming across the United States, the European Union and Latin America in six total languages.
“Amogo Networx’s growth from a YouTube channel to a full on movie channel is a wonderful case study in the possibilities when content creation and delivery of content over the internet meet,” said Wurl’s Chief Operating Officer, Sean Doherty, Jr. “Partnering to deliver Amogo’s FAST channels will be another stone in the yellow brick road to our destination: the democratization of access to content through ad supported platforms.”
What Amogo Networx Audiences Can Expect:
Based in Germany, Amogo Networx (www.amogo-networx.com) originally began building its suite of branded content on YouTube, building its audience to over 6 million subscribers, with 1 billion movie views per year.
