Vidshadow Delivers a KO for Online Video
Posted on 5/15/2008
Today we are proud to announce a large scale partnership with the famed boxing icon, Julio César Chávez. Julio has recently launched his official website: JulioCesarChavez.net, and Vidshadow has been selected to be the online video platform, we will also be syndicating his video content across the Vidshadow network. So to all affiliates, you now will have the ability to stream fight footage along with exclusive documentary clips on your own sites. You can add the Julio Cesar Chavez channel to your player by logging into the affiliate administrative console.
“Julio César Chávez is a national hero to the entire country of Mexico,” said Vidshadow CEO Jordan D. Hudgens. “The Julio César Chávez organization sees the potential of reaching millions of online viewers through the JulioCesarChavez.net website, and because of this partnership, we are now actively extending our efforts in order to reach the fast-growing US Latino online market, particularly among Mexicans – the largest national origin group living in the US.”
Julio commented, “I am very excited by this development. I always wanted a website so that all the fans who honored me with their support for so many years could watch my greatest fights and follow my sons. Thanks to Vidshadow, they can watch different videos all the time. I am glad they are our partner.”
This news is very exciting considering that there were 15.7 million Hispanic Internet users in the US in 2005, according to eMarketer. This total rose to 16.7 million in 2006. Increasing at a rate of 25%, nearly 21 million Latinos will be online by 2010. This means that by 2010 the number of Hispanic Internet users will approach the number of African-American users, making Latinos the fastest-growing minority group in the US to adopt Internet use. According to a Pew Study, second generation Latinos or acculturated Latinos adopt Internet use even faster.
“Younger generations of US Latinos as well as second-generation Latinos coming of age currently in the US have not been exposed to some of professional boxing’s true legends,” said Brian Weymouth, President of Julio César Chávez Enterprises. “With an all-time winning streak of 90-0, Julio César Chávez is indeed one of those legends that will inspire Mexicans and all Latinos in the US and abroad. And now, thanks to Vidshadow, his millions of fans worldwide can relive his most triumphant moments in the ring again and again, even as they follow the budding careers of his sons, Julio, Jr. and Omar. La leyenda sigue – the Legend continues!”
