Outcast Media Selects BroadSign Software for its Fuel and Fitness TV Networks
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA and MONTREAL, CANADA, March 26, 2013 – Outcast Media, the fastest growing TV network with nearly 19,000 screens in 120 DMAs, has started the conversion of its advertising network to BroadSign International, LLC.’s Software-as-a-Service. Outcast operates Fuel and Fitness networks with targeted content on screens in the United States that reach 48 million monthly viewers. Both networks will be converted to BroadSign.
Outcast offers a stellar slate of programming including customized content from Fox News Channel, ABC Entertainment (Jimmy Kimmel Live), MLB, NFL Network and Flixster (movie ratings and reviews), as well as content from Fortune 500 advertisers who generate high purchase intent and strong sales uplifts with their campaigns on the Fuel and Fitness Networks.
Outcast’s rapid growth forced the company to pursue a more powerful software platform that could meet the necessary scale and versatility requirements of its networks. Outcast’s CEO and co-founder, Matthew Stoudt, said: "With one of the smartest TV networks in the marketplace, Outcast needed a robust platform driven by innovation. We evaluated a series of vendors which resulted in a clear win for BroadSign. We saw that its highly intuitive and scalable platform and industry-leading team made the best choice for our fast-growing TV network."
