Tudou Announces In-House Produced Webisode Series Licensed To Satellite TV Stations

Stocks in this article: TUDO





SHANGHAI, March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Tudou Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: TUDO) ("Tudou" or the "Company"), a leading Internet video company in China, today announced that the Company has entered into an agreement to license broadcasting rights for its self-produced webisode series Love Oh Dear I Do, to Shenzhen Media Group and China Anhui TV Station.  

This marks the first time that an online video company in China has successfully sold the broadcasting distribution rights for a self-produced webisode series to Chinese TV networks for broadcasting during prime time. Beginning in early March 2012, the show will be aired during prime time, simultaneously on Shenzhen Satellite TV and Anhui Satellite TV, as well as Tudou.com. Produced by Tudou's in-house original production team, Love Oh Dear I Do, is a teen drama series starring several popular Taiwanese actors, including Tammy Chen, Dylan Kuo, Song Minyu, and Re Yizha.

Siming Liu, General Manager of Tudou Original Programming Center, stated: "We are very excited to have one of Tudou's original productions become China's first webisode series made available to a wider TV audience. This is a testament not only to the high quality of our in-house original productions, but also to the effectiveness of our original programming business model. We continue to believe that our model of controlling key aspects of our original programming process, including concept generation, scriptwriting, director and actor selection, and marketing and distribution, while outsourcing actual production, is a sustainable model for achieving high quality video content in a cost effective way."

"In addition, by selling the broadcasting rights to leading Chinese satellite networks, we are able to further enhance the monetization opportunities of this content.  Looking ahead, we will continue to leverage our core strengths in producing original series, while further cooperating with major media houses," Siming Liu added.

Built upon Tudou's proven success in in-house production, the Company has produced six successful in-house series which have received over 200 million video views to date.  These series include such hits as Utopia Office, That Love Comes, and Love Oh Dear I Do.
