At AOL, we want to bring people closer to the things that matter, while helping them discover and share stories and information that color their lives, especially when it comes to video. Today we announced the launch of The AOL On Network – a new video platform that offers premium content across 14 content channels including food, business, entertainment, style, tech, travel, health and others, and reaches nearly 57 million U.S. consumers.*

At the center of the Network is the AOL On video hub (http://on.aol.com), a premier destination for consumers to discover all the videos they should be watching now. The AOL On hub offers a true point of view. Curated by a team of programmers, the hub features original shows, partner content from a library ofover 320,000 high quality, short-form videos created by more than 1,000 premier publishers, and curated video playlists hand-selected by industry thought leaders. High profile celebrities like Nina Garcia, Rachel Roy, Heidi Klum, Adrian Grenier, Erin Fetherston, Marc Forgione, Sam Talbot and Christine Vachon have already signed on to curate AOL On playlists and share their passions and unique perspectives with viewers.

You can experience AOL On content across the desktop, mobile and tablet optimized sites and apps, and in the living room through AOL On HD via Samsung, Sony, Roku, Google TV, Boxee and Yahoo! Connected TV devices.

The launch of The AOL On Network was announced at AOL's 2012 Digital Content NewFront, where more than 450 brand advertisers, marketers, agencies and digital and TV media buyers came together to see AOL's new slate of video programming, meet original programming producers and casts, and experience the power and reach of the AOL brand.
