Nov 30, 2011 (03:11 PM EST)


NEW YORK, Nov. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Broadcasting Group (DBG; www.dbg.tv), the leading creator, producer and distributor of premium video content across digital media, today announced that Forbes has named the company to its list of America's Most Promising Companies.

DBG is ranked #3 out of 100 companies on the 2011 list, which is available online at www.forbes.com/ampc. At #3, DBG is the highest ranked New York-headquartered company to make the list.

"Our inclusion on this prestigious list reaffirms our vision of bringing premium video content to the web," said DBG CEO Chris Young. "We're honored and privileged to be among some of the fastest rising companies in America."

Forbes' list of America's Most Promising Companies features 100 privately held up-and-comers with compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital.

"Sizing up younger, privately held companies is hard: Their fortunes can change very quickly and there's a dearth of public data," says Forbes Executive Editor Brett Nelson. "We took a more comprehensive approach to evaluate their health and potential."

Launched in 2007, DBG has become one of the leading names in online video content production and distribution. In addition to its comScore-rated top 5 video distribution capabilities, the company ideates, produces, distributes and monetizes original video content for the web for dozens of top-level brands. Additionally, through its owned and operated premium Content Library Platform (CLiP), DBG programs original and syndicated video content directly into publishers' websites, providing engaging video content for users and premium ad inventory for publishers and their clients.
