Discovery announces digital partnerships with VS Media and TABILABO

Discovery Networks Asia Pacific on Wednesday announced two new partnerships across Asia, with VS Media, a Multichannel Network (MCN) that super-serves digital natives in Greater China with more than 120 million subscribers and 320 million video views a month, and Tabilabo, one of the leading digital media businesses in Japan.

These initiatives are in keeping with Discovery’s ambitions to transform and accelerate its growth across Asia Pacific by providing access to high quality content that is being truly customized for ‘mobile-first’ millennial audiences.

Last August, Discovery took a minority investment in VS Media. Together, they are now launching TAN BA, a unique digital brand solution specifically targeting millennialsthat make up over a quarter of the Chinese population. TAN BA aims to deliver smart entertainment through highly customized short-form video content that stimulates curiosity and new learning every day. Content is sourced exclusively from Discovery’s extensive global catalogue and localized by VS Media to deliver short-form, digital-video solution with a multi-genre focus including Health & Wellness, Science & Technology, Travel & Lifestyle, Art & Fashion, History, and Nature. These specially crafted videos will be distributed across the most popular online/social platforms in China including Bilibili, Eyepitizer, Meipai, Miaopao, Pear Video, Penguin, QQ, Toutiao, WeChat, Weibo, and Youku as well as Facebook and YouTube across other markets in Asia.

Established in 2014, TABILABO is a rapidly expanding digital media business, which has over nine million monthly active users and delivers high quality lifestyle-centric content. The partnership between Discovery and TABILABO includes a commercial agreement that will enable collaboration to bring solutions to advertisers to reach their desired audience via true 360 opportunities across linear, digital, and on social platforms leveraging TABILABO’s innovative advertising technology and formats, and Discovery’s world-class stable of advertisers.

“I am thrilled to officially launch the first of many exciting initiatives with Discovery. Tan Ba delivers unique, highly engaging and truly compelling content in a breakthrough format that has been developed with our local creators and designed specifically for digital savvy, millennial audiences,” said Ivy Wong, Founder & CEO, VS Media. “During beta testing, Tan Ba generated over 120 million unique views in less than a month with no marketing at all. The average views per video exceeded 2 million. This is exciting, especially as we look to create new engagement opportunities for audiences and our valued sponsor communities.”

Shotaro Kushi, CEO, TABILABO said, “We are thrilled to partner with Discovery Networks to launch the industry’s first premium video advertising solution across both digital and linear platforms. Through this endeavor, we will be able to drive higher engagement amongst Japanese audiences by focusing on media brands and world-class content quality that cannot be realized only with digital-targeted marketing alone.”

“These exciting digital-first initiatives are the first steps in Discovery’s long-term strategy to accelerate our growth in Asia with digital at the core,” said Arthur Bastings, President & Managing Director, Discovery Networks Asia Pacific. “We are deeply committed to engaging more viewers across more screens than ever before, building our presence on new platforms and attracting young passionate communities that advertisers want to reach with unique branded content opportunities through VS Media and TABILABO’s extensive networks and strong base of millennial audiences.”
