Wurl Announces 150+ Million Viewers, New Partnerships, New Programming, New Offerings, New Key Executives and Global Expansion

PALO ALTO, Calif., Dec. 4, 2018 — (PRNewswire) —  


Wurl, the leading network for Internet-based video distribution and ad monetization, today unveiled its accomplishments and milestones for 2018. Leading the list are new video services now accessible via the Wurl Network including Samsung TV Plus, Roku Channel, Twitch TV, Amazon Fire TV, Sling TV, Xumo, Pluto TV, AppleTV, and Xbox, among others, as well as new channel launches for Stadium, Eleven Sports, NBC, BBC, Universal Animation, Fremantle Media, Warner Studios and over 50 others. This growth has further bolstered the Wurl Network's advertising inventory — which is already one of the largest pools of connected TV inventory in the world. Wurl also expanded its roster of leadership talent, making 2018 a remarkable year of growth for the company. 

The Wurl Network is growing through a chain reaction as more video producers, more video services and more advertisers race to connect to the Wurl Network.  As viewing time migrates away from legacy pay TV, Wurl expects that total global viewing time on Internet-based services will surpass traditional pay TV in 2019.  Recognizing this shift, even the largest cable and broadcast networks are accelerating their distribution to OTT services. 

"The Wurl Network is creating a vastly expanded body of content and ad inventory for its customers thanks to the unprecedented reach of our network," said Sean Doherty, CEO of Wurl. "This symbiotic growth between video producers and video services has created an engine for an exponentially increasing pool of ad inventory.  In the 13 months since we launched the Wurl Network, the growth has been extraordinary."

As part of its rapid growth, Wurl has expanded its leadership team with notable industry leaders:
