Vision

The QYOU is the world’s first entertainment company focused on the curation and programming of short-form video content for the Video-Everywhere age. We find and license videos from around the world in categories ranging from factual to viral and everything in between; packaging them for linear and on-demand TV and video channels, playlist-driven mobile apps, custom shows, and influencer marketing campaigns.

Deeply immersed in web video culture, QYOU curators are also creators – with hundreds of credits, tens of thousands of fans, and millions of views between them. Our clients include some of the world’s leading cable companies, television networks, and video platforms, as well as consumer brands with the vision to leverage the power of short form video to engage with audiences everywhere.
