Next New Networks aims to build internet based "micro television networks" for targeted niche communities. The concept brings together elements of traditional TV networks with Internet functionality that invites viewers to contribute, share and distribute content; think Weblogs Inc meets video blogging with an everywhere distribution model.
Next New Networks is the leading provider of original, episodic series programming for the Internet. With over 1 billion views since the company's launch in 2007, over 2 million subscribers, and some of the biggest hits on the Web, Next New Networks is redefining entertainment by championing the next generation of show creators. Popular, award-winning video networks from the company include Barely Political (home of "Obama Girl" and "Auto-Tune the News"), Channel Frederator, featuring cartoons of over 1,000 creators, food network for the people Hungry Nation, car news network Fast Lane Daily, filmmaking network Indy Mogul (home of hit series "Backyard FX," "Beyond the Trailer," and "Moviebuzz"), fashion and lifestyle network ThreadBanger, and Barely Digital (home of "The Key of Awesome," one of the top three most-watched shows on the Web since its launch in October 2009).
