SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 08, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE)
GoFish Corporation (OTCBB:GOFH), the leading publicly-traded online video company where millions of people come to upload, share, and watch videos, today announced content licensing partnerships with CultureCatch, Inc. and Soma Management LLC to deliver a wide variety of appealing digital entertainment and lifestyle programs on the GoFish Network.
These strategic partnerships provide GoFish's community of nearly 6 million monthly unique users access to an expansive array of new programming. From CultureCatch's insightful celebrity interviews to Soma Management's unique lifestyle channels for women, GoFish will add hundreds of new programs to its growing collection of licensed content. As part of the agreement, GoFish will share revenue from advertising sponsorships of both companies' respective material.
"These collaborations with CultureCatch and Soma Management enable GoFish to continue to bring a greater variety of high-quality, original content to our burgeoning community," said Michael Downing, founder and CEO of GoFish. "By consistently offering the most comprehensive mix of programming on the Internet, GoFish also has created a compelling environment that attracts top-flight advertisers who wish to be associated with our dynamic community."
CultureCatch is an online podcasting magazine dedicated to the creation of audio/video interviews with today's cultural artists. The insightful interviews explore topics in art, literature, music, and film, and focus on artists who have millions of fans in their respective creative fields. CultureCatch's collection of interviews includes such artists as David Lynch, The Shins, Henry Rollins, Justin Theroux, and Laura Dern, among many others.
"CultureCatch strives to bring greater attention to artists who are typically underserved by the mass media," said Richard Burns, co-founder of CultureCatch. "This partnership with GoFish provides us with an opportunity to elevate CultureCatch and the profile of these artists to a much larger audience."
Soma Management is committed to the creation of fully-developed lifestyle brands and properties centered around original stories, imaginative visuals and empowering messages that inspire people. An original content creator, the company brings a business and technology savvy to women's lifestyle interests, producing digital media content in the teen, luxury, travel, health, fashion and beauty markets.
"We're thrilled to offer our high-quality and entertaining content through the GoFish Network," said E.C. Morgan, CEO of Soma Management. "Since the introduction of our women's lifestyle programs last November, Soma Management's goal has been to deliver our programming to the widest possible audience, and launching channels on GoFish enables us to reach a new and significant community of viewers."
