BroadbandTV is coming to America. The large multi-channel network, which is based in Vancouver, has announced a second office, which will open in Midtown Manhattan.
By opening its new office, BroadbandTV–which claims 2.5 billion impressions across its network of more than 25,000 partners–moves closer to some of its most prominent partners. For example, Midtown Manhattan is also home to FremantleMedia North America, which recently teamed up with BroadbandTV through its Tiny Riot studio. YouTube has also opened a new production space in New York City, which is located a bit farther downtown in Chelsea Market.
“We’re already the third largest multi-channel network globally and serve tens of thousands of content owners and creators in the U.S.,” said Shahrzad Rafati, Founder & CEO of BroadbandTV, in a release. “The New York offices will further allow us to strengthen our partnerships with leading brands and advertisers as we continue to target opportunities surrounding the shift of ad spends to the digital space.”
The New York office is only the first part of a multi-continent expansion for BroadbandTV. The network–which previous turned to international companies for venture capital–also hopes to expand into Europe and South America.
