IRVINE, Calif., June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- HUZO today announced the launch of HUZO.com, a revolutionary new category where entertainment and social media converge to give people a single source for all content such as movies, games, e-books and music. "We call it Entertainment 3.0™," said Terrell Samuels, HUZO CEO and Co-Founder.
"Plus, our socially-conscious revenue sharing model empowers the HUZO community to join our company in giving something back to causes that are important to them," Samuels said.
In addition to serving as a media distribution channel and a social networking platform, HUZO's unique revenue-sharing also provides an unprecedented opportunity for people and organizations to monetize social networks.
"We've created a way to share our revenue from media distribution with anyone," Samuels explained. "From entertainment celebrities or athletes with a large fan bases, to charities, churches and even individuals, anyone can tap into the revenue stream created by the $120 billion-a-year-plus market for movie DVDs, games, e-books and music."
In addition to sharing revenues with its community, HUZO sets aside two percent of total revenues to fund its charitable foundation.
"This is truly the next generation of entertainment," Samuels said.
By getting their movies, games, music and e-books from HUZO, individuals can earn enough to receive their entertainment for free, and even receive cash back. Today, millions of people get their entertainment from familiar providers such as Amazon and Netflix. When they subscribe to HUZO for that same content, they recoup two percent of the cost in cash, which they can keep for themselves or designate to go to any organization they choose. HUZO subscribers also receive additional cash incentives for referring friends who subscribe.
As a social network platform, HUZO provides a way for people to stay connected with their favorite celebrities and participate in communities around the world of entertainment. Users simply go to HUZO.com and create a free online profile, then invite family, coworkers, colleagues and friends to join their HUZO network. They can upload pictures and then share, rate, and discuss their favorite movies, games, e-books and music with their community.
HUZO members can follow their favorite celebrity, charity, school, church or business on HUZO. The revenue sharing model allows subscribers to generate income for themselves and their networks simply by doing what they already love – watching movies, playing games and listening to music.
Samuels said the HUZO business model is designed to help monetize large social networks, as well as to be an effective fundraising vehicle for organizations. One big advantage is that for the most part, HUZO is not going after new dollars. "People are already paying for subscriptions to receive movies, games, e-books and music. We simply provide more value and a richer experience for the money people are already spending on this entertainment content," Samuels said.
