“The internet has given rise to a new era of imaginative snack-sized content which is steadily becoming a core part of people’s entertainment diet,” commented Scott Ehrlich, The Qyou co-Founder and CEO.
“Now operators are waking up to the fact that having this content available on their services can satisfy growing consumer tastes for varied videos, delivered in a way that’s consistent with a premium TV experience. With the addition of Bob, Amory, and Natasha to our Executive team, we’re better positioned than ever to expand The Qyou’s footprint into a range of new markets.”
The new appointments closely follow The Qyou’s recent raising of CDN$10.4M in equity funding.
