Vuze and Ministry of Sound Take Online Viewers to Ibiza22 May, 2007 By: Billy Gil
Azureus Inc. has signed a content agreement with Ministry of Sound TV (MoSTV), a digital content provider for dance music entertainment, to feature content on Azureus' peer-to-peer video-sharing Web site, Vuze.com.
The content will include behind-the-scenes footage from music videos, exclusive interviews and video from legendary nightclub haven Ibiza, Spain. Vuze's MoSTV channel will have hours of exclusive high-definition content created specifically for the Web site.
“With a built-in global user base of millions, Vuze is the perfect destination for MoSTV to share its content with fans of dance music from around the world, enabling them to comment on and rate their favorite segments,” said Gilles BianRosa, CEO of Azureus.
Ministry of Sound began as a London nightclub in 1991 and has since incorporated such avenues as running a successful record label and more than 2,000 global events a year. It launched the IPTV channel MoSTV in 2006, featuring music videos, mini-documentaries, interviews with DJs and event coverage.
“With more than 15 years in existence, Ministry of Sound certainly understands longevity,” said Assia Grazioli-Venier, head of MoSTV. “We recognize that to continually engage current fans and also attract new ones requires us to deliver the latest entertainment in innovative ways. Vuze is the perfect platform to do this with its social networking tools and millions of users.”
