Our content for different media platforms include everything from the always fresh and innovative MTV, niche music channels like Vh1 and MTV Dance, children channel Nickelodeon and Comedy Central, to the Nordic traffic at dot com sites like GameTrailers, Addicting Games, Xfire and Neopets to mention a few. To describe us we’ve used a few key words: global leader, force in media and source to youth.
As a leader in music and media all over the world, we both unite and differentiate. Network is what we are, not only by name. Young people have a platform to share content from different cultures, but still to make and consume their own locally flavored media. You can always be sure that the audience will be tuning in to Viacom sources when it comes to what’s new and what’s on.
Here in the Nordic region we have locally programmed channels with international content, also sharing across continents. As we built some of the world’s most famous stars, MTV in the Nordic region has been a part of launching several local artists across the world. MTV and Nickelodeon is produced in local language versions for Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Apart from them we also have a range of niche brands for various tastes.
Force in media
We are determined to make a difference. We created the docu soap. We were first with real life comedy, first with interactive TV and with broadband TV. We were part of tearing down the Berlin wall. We are the world’s leading producer of mobile video content. In anything we do, you can be sure that we are leaving the famous box. We take pride in not being normal. Who said Tom Greene is normal? Bam in Jackass? Sponge Bob Square Pants? And who else would pimp up their rides and arrange dates with Tila Tequila? Who else would use their power so strongly to take an active stand on the AIDS issue, trafficking and nutrition?
Source to youth
At Viacom we attract the most creative and talented young people in the industry and we are proud of it. And to stay on top and drive the entertainment industry, all our brands conduct cutting edge viewer research which brings us close to our audience. We are always prepared to share our knowledge and passion for our viewers. You can count on us being the partner with the insights.
Strengthening the bond with our audiences in every way
A strong connection to our audiences is what sets us apart from other companies. This focus has brought us into the hearts and minds of our consumers across every demographic and every platform. Through television, film and a diverse range of digital media, we deliver world-renowned, best-in-class brands, and continue to evolve and revitalize these brands in an effort to strengthen our commitment to our audiences around the globe. We believe our creative culture and desire to seek creative excellence is what drives our success. And the development of original content for all of our media networks and Paramount Pictures is a direct result of that dedication to innovation and our audiences.
