BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Get Real USA, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GTRL) announced today that it has agreed to acquire a significant equity ownership interest in the new "Now TV Live" streaming online television network.
Now TV Live believes it will be the first ever live-streaming television network distributed through the Machinima/YouTube platform. The Network will produce content in its own state-of-the-art video studio in North Hollywood, California.
Mr. Aaron Johnson, Chairman of Get Real USA, Inc. said, "What makes the launch of this new network so exciting is the instant access we'll have to the huge audience of active Machinima viewers as well as their existing subscriber base of over one hundred-twenty million people."
According to research company comScore, Inc., "In 2011 more than 100 million Americans watched online video content on an average day, with over 43.5 billion video streams delivered in December 2011 alone."
For the month of April 2012 Machinima viewers watched over 1.6 Billion videos, making them the number one all-time Entertainment Channel on YouTube. Machinima properties are found across the largest global distribution platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, iOS and Android.
"Get Real USA currently owns 3.21% of Now TV Live. Once this new agreement is finalized the Company will own a total of 12.5% of the Network. The revenue model is to produce sponsored content that has the potential to earn Now TV Live millions of dollars annually. We will profit in proportion to our ownership interest in Now TV Live," added Mr. Johnson.
