Funn is a content distribution alternative & monetization platform for consumers, content providers & marketers based on proprietary IP.



Funn Networks is an emerging monetization and engagement platform providing content aggregators, content owners and marketers a ground-breaking alternative to reach, engage and monetize their audience — while, at the same time, providing that audience with a more intimate, personalized and enjoyable viewing experience.

Funn will intrinsically change the way viewers consume content, receive marketing messages and engage with both.

Funn provides marketers a game changing platform to reach consumers who have stated specific interest in their products and brands. Funn’s unique direct to consumer engagement platform monetizes content at a level and value that owners have only been able to dream about.

Simply put– Funn is designed to satisfy the needs of content providers and marketers by focusing ENTIRELY on the consumer and brand engagement.

Funn provides content owners, delivery platforms, marketers and publishers with:

– A competitive “free” alternative. Funn doesn’t disrupt current business models. Rather, we provide an “alternative” for monetization for OTT’s, MSO’s, MVPD’s, VOD’s and content creators of all shapes and sizes.

– A management platform that enables 100% control over how, where and when content and marketing offerings are presented.

– A personally-directed environment, removing annoying advertising that is generally targeted and addressed to “persona” rather than person. Funn empowers viewers to expressly state what kind of content, brands and products they want to see and know more about.

– A way to enter the Intent-based economy by connecting personally and directly with consumers who have specifically provided preferences for certain identifiable brands and/or SPECIFIC product offers. The platform allows consumers to either accept and execute or save these offers which are purchase drivers.


Funn is emerging as a preferred alternative for content engagement and monetization. Funn provides content providers with a platform by which they can offer their entire digital libraries without disrupting their current business models. Funn provides publishers and content owners enhanced value and payout on a pure white-label basis — enabling them to add to existing or emerging curation and presentation environments. Funn gives marketers the kind of engagement levels and data that they have demanded from media and agencies but have failed to receive, to date. And, Funn provides existing engagement platforms – i.e. loyalty programs — with a total solution to extend their brand, liquidate their incentive liabilities and create a closed-loop marketing environment.

Could just possibly be the holy grail for content distribution…

FUNN’s upfront ad ‘board’ or method of choosing what ads are viewed is far more expansive and complete than Hulu’s is. Hulu brushes the surface; Funn is much deeper. Broadcasters for years have tried to understand who is at the other end of that TV feed they broadcast. The result is that Funn can proclaim that it can produce higher revenues per person than others can, using the FUNN system. Funn, hands down, is certainly one of the best monetization platforms I have seen in over 30 years.
