Metacafe is a web site that specializes in short-form video entertainment in the categories of movies, video games, sports, music and TV.
The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California, with offices in New York, Los Angeles, London and Tel Aviv. Metacafe is privately held and its investors include Accel Partners, Benchmark Capital, DAG Ventures and Highland Capital Partners.
In its early years, Metacafe was similar to other video viewing websites such as YouTube or Dailymotion, but has since transformed itself into a short-form video entertainment site with several differences. The site now showcases more curated, exclusive and original premium entertainment-related video content than any other entertainment destination on the web.
The company's partners include marquee content providers such as major movie studios, video game publishers, broadcast and cable TV networks, music labels and sports leagues.
The site is advertising supported, working closely with brands in the entertainment, consumer electronics, telecommunications, consumer packaged goods, food & beverage, and automotive sectors.
