Video Solutions Rebrands AVOD Services as wedotv


Video Solutions, which owns and operates the Watch4 and W4Free AVOD channels, has rebranded the services as wedotv.

Watch4 has been operating in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, while W4Free has been operating in the U.K. Video Solutions plans to expand outside its current markets with wedotv, including additional countries within Europe, Australia/New Zealand, Africa and North America.

Video Solutions CEO Philipp Rotermund said: “Four years ago, we launched Watch4 with the expectation that AVOD would see a growth boom in the years to come. Of course, that assumption turned out to be somewhat of an understatement! Recent reports have projected that worldwide AVOD revenues will hit $260 billion by 2025. In jointly naming our two already successful AVOD services as wedotv, we will capitalize on our own substantial growth in this space as well as that of the industry as a whole.”

Chairman Chris Sharp added: “The unified brand enables us to drive the business forward in our current markets and future territories. This year has been significant, as we are consistently receiving 30 million video starts a month. This can be attributed to our stronger-than-ever content lineup and our availability across more devices than ever before.”
