The success of Machinima has shown that it’s possible today to build an entirely new form of TV network - one that capitalizes on YouTube’s global reach and builds off content that is almost entirely coming from the gaming world - both publisher and fan created. Machinima is now generating more than 1 billion video views per month, attracting a highly sort-after demographic that is highly engaged with the network. Is this the future of TV?
