The days of pay-to-view performances from Vine stars is approaching faster than you think. Gander.tv, a New York-based online video network which streams live and recorded content, has just added teen Viners Cameron Dallas and Nash Grier to its show lineup.
Dallas and Grier have their own channels featuring live and pre-recorded skits, live chats, interviews, and event coverage. While some of the content is free and supported with ads, the premium content requires a subscription.
According to StreamDaily, Gander.tv considers this “an amazing opportunity… as these broadcasts will bring a highly desirable demographic.” Chris Carey, CEO and co-founder of Gander.tv’s parent company Eyes on the Go, said in a statement, “The combination of building a strong subscriber base, plus attracting well-priced ads make this a huge win for us.” Previously, though boasting over 35 million page views a month, Gander.tv had a limited East Coast reach, featuring live streams and recorded events (like concerts) from around New York City nightlife.
Dallas and Grier are two of the top teen celebrities in social media, having a combined total of over 15 million Vine followers, 9 million Instagram followers, and 6.6 million Twitter followers. They also signed a movie deal back in April with AwesomenessTV, so they’ll bring plenty of attention to Gander.tv and will likely add a swarm of new subscribers to the site.
You can catch the shows, with the first appearance by Grier, on Wednesday, August 27th at 7 p.m. EST (4 p.m. PST) on Gander.tv. And if you’d like to access some of that premium content, join the network for $2.99 a month, or consider a yearly subscription at only $29.99. Alternatively, you can try out the service for just $.99 for your first month before you invest in further entertainment from the site.
