Dailymotion rolls out on-demand content hubs

Video content sharing site Dailymotion has launched rapid-response, on-demand content hubs featuring programmed collections of content based on trending topics in social media, search, events and breaking news--all in near real-time. The move gives advertisers and Dailymotion partners an improved system to take advantage of targeting opportunities around topics and real-time events.

The site selections contain selections from Dailymotion's premium, independent and user-generated video, built around events and interest areas consumers are actively looking for.
