Jakarta: Dailymotion, a leading video technology and content discovery platform, has joined hands with Medcom.id, one of the largest digital news platforms in Indonesia, to bring its news programs to the global audience.
A member of Metro TV which is the first 24-hour news channel in Indonesia, Medcom.id has
become a key player in the industry and is now focused on growing their online presence. This partnership with dailymotion is meant to expand Medcom.id's distribution and share a wider range of content, exploring areas such as lifestyle, travel and entertainment.
As part of the deal, Medcom.id will launch two channels on dailymotion. With the additional use of dailymotion’s video player on Medcom.id’s website, the readers’ experience will be enhanced by engaging video content that aims at creating a seamless journey across its webpage and mobile sites.
"Medcom.id's collaboration with Daily Motion is a joint effort to serve the public with information needs. Providing fast, accurate and enlightening information is our challenge," noted Budiyanto, Editor-in-Chief of Medcom.id.
Medcom.id’s partnership with dailymotion is also a strategic one. A recent study by Mist Media reported that the average user spends 88% more time on a website with video, hence, strengthening Medcom.id’s foothold in digital media by increasing reader engagement and maximizing video advertisement revenues.

Having such premium news content available on our platform is what we have been and will continue to do as well," commented Antoine Nazaret, Vice President of dailymotion APAC

combined efforts to reach a wider audience, dailymotion will continue to bring Medcom.id closer
