ZUUS Media announced the launch of its music video multi-channel network with reach across TV, web, connected TV and mobile devices.

According to a release, in collaboration with major labels and over 75 independents, ZUUS will give music fans an expertly curated, lean-back viewing experience. Currently in public beta, ZUUS will offer 100+ digital channels spanning a wide variety of music genres and four linear, genre-specific TV channels. ZUUS features one of the largest catalogues of music videos and will launch original content including live footage, behind-the-scenes access, interviews, artist-hosted shows and more. ZUUS' team of music industry experts empowers music enthusiasts to watch their favorite music videos whenever they want, wherever they want.

"ZUUS fills the void left in the landscape when music channels migrated to reality content," explains ZUUS co-founder and CEO, Steve Goldstein. "There is a massive demand for music video content but a lack of destinations for people to sit back and enjoy it. We're excited to introduce ZUUS to the marketplace; there's nothing out there like it."

"The music video has become a lost art, but remains a prized element of an artist's expression," said Daniel Glass, President of GlassNote Records. "Thanks to ZUUS, music fans can once again enjoy the visual creativity of their favorite artists. Labels recognize the demand for music videos by today's biggest artists, and acknowledge the gap in the current marketplace for a compelling visual means by which to introduce viewers to new, emerging artists. ZUUS is the perfect platform for discovery."

ZUUS said it is concurrently launching four separate genre- specific music video TV channels throughout the US. While still in beta, distribution on ZUUS Country and Latin has already grown to 50 million combined households. ZUUS plans to round out its linear TV offering with two more channels: ZUUS Hits (Pop & Rock) and ZUUS Hip- Hop and R&B, both slated for a Q3 launch.
