While blip.tv signs sweeping distribution deals with entertainment management, media, and content production companies representing handfuls of YouTube talent, male oriented and technology leaning new media studio Revision3 is signing niche and uber popular YouTube stars one by one.
Dan Brown aka pogobat aka Dan3.0 inked a deal with Rev3 last August, which put the San Francisco-based internet TV network in charge of his marketing and ad sales while the internet took charge of a year of his life. The Young Turks brought their talents to the house that Kevin Rose built in December 2010. Epic Meal Time signed with Rev3 this past April. And now TechnoBuffalo aka jon4lakers aka Jon Rettinger joins the fold.
Expect the University of Rochester alum and marketing professional to continue to bring his “product and app reviews, gossip from the tech world, and news” to online technophiles everywhere by way of a three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) original web series featuring himself and TechnoBuffallo editors Noah Kravitz and Jon Quach. Given the content, the program should fit nicely into Revision3’s programming slate, alongside series like Tekzilla and GeekBeat.TV.
Revision3 certainly likes Rettinger’s content, but they also like his online following. He’s built up a sizeable audience since his YouTube debut back 2007 and the launch of TechnoBuffallo.com in 2009 and joins Revision3 with nearly 200,000 YouTube subscribers in tow, making him the 29th Most Subscribed YouTube Guru of All-Time.
