LONDON & MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The LADbible Group, a UK based entertainment company which is followed
by half of all 18-24 UK men and almost quarter of 18-24 year old UK
women has ranked as the #1 most watched media property in Europe –
according to Tubular Labs’ July rankings of top online video creators
and brands.

In July The LADbible also moved up one place to become the #3 most
watched media property globally after Buzzfeed and Time Warner.

The company, which partnered with Tubular Labs in March 2016 to bolster
its video views, garnered 3.1 billion views across all platforms and
LADbible Group publishers in July. Buzzfeed, Time Warner and The Walt
Disney company generated 4.8 billion views, 3.2 billion views and 2.6

Adam Clyne, Chief Operating Officer, The LADbible Group, said:

“It’s very encouraging to see the strength of our video performance
across all our brands and across video platforms including Facebook,
Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Vine and our websites. We have created a
global audience of millennials and Gen Z who associate our brands with
great video content.

It’s especially exciting to see how well LADbible Group is performing
compared to some of the biggest media businesses in the world and to
have moved from fourth to third place in the global rankings, moving
ahead of a giant like the Walt Disney Company.”

“We’re constantly innovating in how we play out our video strategy
and our partnership with Tubular Labs has helped us measure and
understand our performance in a very granular way. We have seen some
very exciting results with new products like Facebook Live. Across the
group we did 26 Facebook Live broadcasts July with highlights like Last
Lolly Standing
https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=2783253238388515,
which delivered 6.4 million views.
The result is that in July we
generated 3.1 billion views.”
