UK Media Powerhouses all3media International and BBC Worldwide Join Vimeo’s Global Marketplace

Vimeo, home to the world’s leading video creators and hundreds of millions monthly viewers, announced content partnerships with two leading UK companies: independent distributor all3media International and BBC Worldwide, bringing a range of award-winning comedy, drama, and documentary titles to Vimeo’s transactional video on demand (TVOD) marketplace.

Vimeo is thrilled to collaborate with all3media International and BBC Worldwide. The partners each bring a unique array of content from UK’s finest creators that we’re excited to have on our platform for viewers around the world.
says Vimeo’s Head of Global Content Partnerships and Distribution, Sam Toles.
The first slate of all3media International programming released on Vimeo includes all four seasons of Objective Productions’ award-winning “Fresh Meat,” the painfully amusing drama following six students through their university years, from acclaimed satirical and comedy writers Jesse Bain and Sam Armstrong (“The Thick of It,” “Peep Show”). “Fresh Meat” will be available on Vimeo worldwide (excluding UK) starting today.
Also making its debut on Vimeo from all3media International today will be all seven seasons of Company Pictures’ iconic youth series “Skins.” Winner of multiple awards and garnering wide critical and commercial acclaim, “Skins” tackles the highs and lows of growing up through the stories of friendship, ambition, drug culture, mental health, sex and relationships, all with an honesty and conviction seldom seen on screen. “Skins” will be available worldwide on Vimeo (excluding Australia), with multiple seasons available in other markets.
We’re very pleased to sign this deal with Vimeo in what we are expecting will be the start of a highly successful ongoing global collaboration. Vimeo has a strong presence around the world with a great brand that reaches consumers in all key markets – its team has a dynamic outlook on content delivery and we’re looking forward to working with them to bring more fantastic new shows to the Vimeo audience.
notes Paul Corney, SVP Global Digital Sales at all3media International.
On the BBC Worldwide side, music documentary “They Will Have To Kill US First,” and shortform series “Mission Selfie” and “Isms & Schisms” will debut on Vimeo tomorrow. “They Will Have To Kill US First,” a Mojo Music production, was selected for the SXSW and London Film Festivals and tells the compelling story of when music was banned in Northern Mali in 2012 following Jihadist control, forcing musicians into exile. The doc will be available worldwide on Vimeo (except for the US and France). “Mission Selfie,” which has previously only run on BBC Three in the UK, features social media stars Ben Brown and Steve Booker as they travel the globe on a quest to take the ultimate “selfie” in this exciting shortform adventure series. A Narrative production for BBC Worldwide, “Mission Selfie” will be available worldwide on Vimeo. “Isms & Schisms” will have a global, all-platform premiere on Vimeo. A Burning Bright production for BBC Worldwide, this fast-moving short form series offers a fun and irreverent study of politics and ideology around the world, with exciting young journalist and writer Owen Jones explaining the –isms and issues that concern us all.
We’re thrilled to be partnering with Vimeo. We think our launch titles serve the adventurous spirit of Vimeo’s dedicated audience, continuing the BBC’s tradition of premium storytelling. We look forward to growing our partnership with Vimeo over the coming year.
said Stuart Wettenhall, Digital Partnerships at BBC Worldwide.
