Disney’s Maker Studios has signed a partnership with IAC’s Vimeo platform to provide content. As CNBC is reporting, “The companies are collaborating to fund exclusive content for Vimeo on Demand. That means Maker creators will sell content on Vimeo, before they make it available for free—with ads—on YouTube. In addition to the funding, Vimeo will offer its tools as a service to Maker’s 55,000 creators to convert them to publishing on Vimeo’s platform.”
This deal is marked as a way Disney is finding new revenue streams for Maker Studios. Vimeo takes 10% of fees while YouTube takes 45% of revenues.
