OnWax Media Holdings, L.P. (Wax), has launched a new Wax-branded YouTube channel, youtube.com/onWax, that provides action sports filmmakers unprecedented visibility and support.
The Wax branded channel will house hundreds of top action and outdoor sports content videos. This includes originally produced content, feature films and shorts from some of the world's best filmmakers in the genre including surf, snowboard, ski, skateboard, mountain bike, motocross, climbing, and more.
The Wax YouTube channel will offer content producers an industry-leading revenue share program designed to maximize advertising income for producers. In addition, filmmakers will be privy to exclusive options aimed at maximizing reach, visibility and relevancy with consumers, including unlimited sub-channels, extensive tags and coding, and online security to prevent intellectual property theft.
“Our YouTube channel will not only help filmmakers and brands maximize their reach, but will also help fans easily discover quality content,” said Andrew Tow, CEO of Wax. “Our plan is to build the Wax offering and have it feature the largest and best collection of quality action and outdoor sports content available within a single branded action sports channel on YouTube. No other action sports channel offers fans this much variety or offers brands such extensive and comprehensive marketing options. What makes Wax different from other companies is our ability to create high quality original content, market the Wax brand under ongoing national marketing campaigns to maximize reach and attract viewership, and provide our media management and search optimization expertise. This is unique in the action sports space.”
