Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of phase one of our efforts with a full suite of new digital video offerings,” said Samir Arora, Founder & CEO of Mode Media. “The next generation digital video company needs to be a combination of a TV network and a pure digital video player like Netflix and Hulu—offering exclusive original programming and direct-to-consumer distribution. With our reach of over 250 million monthly unique visitors, Mode Media is able to syndicate content embedded across our distribution ecosystem of over 6,000 content businesses, creating a comprehensive new video service.”

Ten new original programming series, which feature celebrities and influencers on the rise, will premiere today across-multiple Mode Media channels, including Mode Entertainment, Brash for Men’s Lifestyle, Home, Glam for Style, Fashion & Beauty, Foodie for Recipes & Restaurants and Tend for Family & Parenting.
