YouTube MCN Fame launches tech vertical #fametech


TO THE NEW Ventures-backed YouTube multi-channel network Fame (earlier Famebox Networks) has launched a new tech vertical called #fametech which aims to be a digital video destination for personal tech content.

The company mentions that #fametech will feature topical video content on gadgets, gizmos and apps including the latest reviews and buying guides among others. Users can will be able to view this content on #fametech’s YouTube channel as well as on Facebook, WeChat and Dailymotion. What’s not clear is whether the company plans to upload these videos on platforms like Facebook or WeChat as well or just redirect users to their YouTube channel.

At launch, the channel features three video reviews from the popular tech anchor Ankit Vengurlekar who had joined Fame in August this year as its VP-Content. Prior to this, Vengurlekar has anchored technology shows like CNBC Awaaz’s Tech Guru, its web series Tech Darbar and CNBC-TV18’s Tech Toyz. It will be interesting to see whether this channel will be limited to videos from Vengurlekar only or the company plans to bring in more content from other tech personalities.
