Tubefilter

Today, I am happy to announce that Tubefilter, Inc. has agreed to acquire New York City based web television news and events business, Tilzy.TV, LLC. This is an important day for Tubefilter, and an important day for the web television community. This acquisition not only strengthens Tubefilter’s core competencies as a news and information business, but also positions us to capitalize on the impending period of growth in the online entertainment industry.

Tilzy and its co-founders, Joshua Cohen and Jamison Tilsner, need no introduction. They have been a staple of this community for the past three years — having not only reported on its growth, but also having played an important role in guiding it. Their addition to Tubefilter management, effective immediately, will add considerably to our already strong leadership team.

Since our inception, Tubefilter’s strategy for growth has been to focus on building value through innovation. In the past year, we have worked diligently to build out a content ecosystem for the web television industry through such industry firsts as the Streamy Awards and our Hollywood Web Television events. The addition of Tilzy’s annual Onfronts to our portfolio of properties will ensure that we are best positioned to create value up and down the content food chain.

As we transition into this new phase of growth, our team will continue to expand. In preparation, we are reorganizing management to better play to the strengths of its individual members, to improve operational efficiencies, and to prepare for a robust expansion of our core business offerings. As Tubefilter’s newly appointed CEO, I am proud to introduce the members of our new management team:

Over the next few months Tubefilter will launch some exciting new initiatives — as part of that process, we will turn to you, members of the community, for guidance and counsel. I look forward to connecting and engaging with you. Know that our door is always open, our email inboxes only a click away, and our browsers always posed to watch the latest and greatest web television content you send our way.

Congratulations to all of the members of the new Tubefilter team. Here’s to another great year in Web Television,

Brady Brim-DeForest
