El Segundo, CA, United States, 2006/09/05 - Created for and by adrenaline junkies, GrindTV.com, a division of PureVideo Networks, Inc., is the premiere online destination to watch, upload, share, and discuss extreme and action sports videos.
GrindTV.com, the most comprehensive destination for extreme and action sports videos, today celebrated a major Company milestone by surpassing one million unique users per month. As its audience’s appetite for dynamic video continues to grow day after day, GrindTV is attracting major partnerships, rewarding syndication deals, and Fortune 500 advertisers, eager to reach its valuable demographic. Even endemic action sports companies, like Body Glove, are collaborating with GrindTV to present branded videos.
"GrindTV is a great outlet for us to promote our athletes and our lifestyle. We have so much great video footage and aside from our own website, we had no place else for people to view it. GrindTV gives us that dedicated outlet that focuses on the core group, who appreciates seeing the best athletes in the world, in and out of the surf," said Scott Daley, Body Glove’s Vice President of Marketing.
To date, Body Glove branded videos have received more than 130,000 views from this core group. Other brands jumping on GrindTV’s dedicated outlet include Studio 411, Nissan, Sony’s Play Station, MSN Video, Microsoft Mobile, TagWorld, and Helio.
From Curtis Beck, General Manager of GrindTV.com, “Being a relative newcomer in the action sports industry, it seems we’re doing something right since GrindTV’s user-base already rivals the circulations of many of the traditional media outlets in this space.”
In addition to the more than one thousand professional and user-generated videos available on GrindTV, the website also offers over 25,000 photographs, covering athletes and contests the world over. And because of this growing inventory, GrindTV.com has completely re-designed its website, to launch mid September, with separate channels for each sports category: Surf, Skate, Snow, Moto, Bike, Air, Wind, and Wake. Other highlights include location-specific information on more than 4000 sports destinations and tools for users to connect around particular athletes, sports, locations, or events.
For a sneak preview of the re-invented website, visit GrindTV at 3305-3309 (Hall B) at the Action Sports Retail Expo in San Diego, on September 8-10, 2006.
