Vevo set to launch in the UK soon
Wednesday 16 March 2011
Vevo, the world's leading online music video site (and currently only available in North America), is launching its site in the UK in the next few weeks.
Plans for world domination are under way, with Vevo's chief executive announcing it will be available in the Middle East and north Africa in the coming months, and "some European countries," Brazil, and Australia later this year and beyond.
Vevo, which launched in the US in 2009, features around 30,000 music videos by artists including Rihanna and Lady Gaga. The company also syndicates the videos to websites such as YouTube on a free-to-view basis.
UK's newspaper the Guardian reported on March 16 that Vevo's chief executive, Rio Caraeff, announced that the site was "planning to launch in the UK imminently," with the Guardian citing some sources "indicating a launch could come as soon as this month."
Vevo beats out MTV as the top online music video website according to comScore.com, which measures digital media traffic for marketing and branding purposes. In January, Vevo reached 51 million unique visitors, while MTV brought in 48 million visitors.
