There are a select few online video networks that have been inducted into the elite Billion Views Club. Machinima is one of them. And now the distributor of content geared towards young male video game enthusiasts garners enough pairs of eyeballs worldwide to make it a member of said elite club month after month after month.
Machinima announced this week over “116 million unique gamers viewed in excess of 1.11 billion videos in November 2011.” 277,330,000 of those views came from 17,750,000 individuals living in the United States who tuned into Machinima’s programming on YouTube. The other 822.6+ million views came from Machinima’s global YouTube audience, as well as those watching Machinima on its various worldwide distribution platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, iOS, and Android.
One reason why Machinima’s been able to command such a massive audience is because of its YouTube channel with over 3.8 million subscribers. Another reason is it makes and distributes some great content. Recent favorites that’ve run through the Machinima network include online drama RCVR, movie-proof-of-concept-turned-web-series-turned-movie Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Felicia Day’s Dragon Age, zombie comedy Bite Me, and perennial favorite of any Halo player Arby ‘n’ the Chief.
