Fame XV aims to change the way content creators distribute their videos, the way viewers consume that content and the way viewers and creators interact.
Based on an innovative scheduling and automated broadcasting system, participants describe and schedule their show by simply copying and pasting their video link or channel ID from YouTube or Ustream. The show is then included on the show-time program and automatically broadcasts at the selected time-slot and on one of the selected channels, adopting the TV model with user-generated videos.
Take a look at what Fame XV could do for you.
In a way comparable to TV, the platform provides viewers a single medium to effortlessly watch a continuous stream of both live and pre-recorded videos from multiple sources – most prominently from YouTube. Viewers can find and watch past shows that were broadcast via the Top Shows page, the Profile pages of the creators and the Show Program. In addition, Fame XV aims to empower viewers, providing the means to vote on videos (Cool! or Sucks!) and to decide what is broadcast, while transforming passive watching into active participation.
Fame XV aims to change the way content creators distribute their videos.
While all users get 15 minutes of “air-time” per week for free, Fame XV is offering select YouTubers reserved/exclusive airtime on its channels to broadcast their shows.
Content creators earn a “reputation score” based on the total of their “show scores”. New features are in the development phase.
The incredible number of videos available online poses a major challenge for content creators to gain visibility and to stand out from the crowd. In particular, YouTube is extremely cluttered and crowded. Offering increased visibility by design, Fame XV aims to complement and enhance existing platforms, empowering content creators to reach and engage with larger audiences.

Fame XV is currently partnering with MCNs, offering them and their partners premium reserved airtime on the platform’s channels. Up to now, Fame XV has partnered with a number of MCNs, including Zodiak Active, Acifin, VOUStudios and Nation Gaming Network.
Speaking to Tube Chum this week, Fame XV user Gary Lynch (of The Gary Lynch Show) said: “I use Fame XV like any other network. I record my videos on YouTube then schedule my show for 10pm on weekdays”.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how Fame XV impacts the YouTube Community”.
“[Fame XV] is such a great platform for YouTubers to get noticed with and I haven’t seen anything else quite like it”.
Another top Fame XV user, Michael Warbux, told us: “Once Fame XV site gets bigger, it’ll help channels grow. [The team] have been beyond courteous to me and they have a great site for creators. I’m looking forward to seeing how they impact the YouTube Community”.
