Apr 03, 2013, 01:36 ET from Spondo

LOS ANGELES, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fresh off the heels of a content-sharing deal with Inception Media and the launch of its dedicated martial arts channel, online streaming and content syndication company Spondo today announced the formation of a strategic alliance with ROAR, LLC, one of the leading talent, music and brand management firms in the United States. The partnership will pave the way for the opening of Spondo's first North American office in Los Angeles in the coming weeks.

Based in Beverly Hills, California, ROAR will drive Spondo's expansion into North America and focus on acquiring content, securing partnerships with production companies, studios and creative agencies plus managing account services for the startup. 

The alliance brings Spondo Global CEO & Director Chris Adams back the city that helped launch his illustrious career in film, technology and digital media and will provide a foothold for the startup in one of the world's largest media markets.  The proximity of the office to major media companies and film studios will allow the servicing of large content contracts and the rapid addition of distributors as Spondo grows both its content holdings and the scope of its affiliate base. 

Speaking about the deal, Chris Adams commented, "Our strategic alliance with ROAR is another indicator of the strength of Spondo's business model and our commitment to global growth. With ROAR's talented staff working on our behalf, we will continue to acquire content and affiliate distributors at a rapid pace and reshape the way consumers find, view and produce content online.  Being on the ground in Los Angeles allows us unparalleled access to the latest and greatest in film, TV and pay per view content, as well as helping us establish a North American corporate presence."

Trent Blacket, Director of ROAR Asia-Pacific stated, "We are excited to be working with Spondo as it seeks to revolutionize the content streaming business.  This is a new business model that will likely shape the industry for years to come, and I am looking forward to seeing the great things that our companies will achieve together."
