Video distribution company BroadbandTV has been racking up online views for years, and the company said it’s now attracting more than 575 million unique viewers per month.

The company said only Google sites exceed BroadbandTV’s viewership, and that the company represents 56% of Google’s unique viewership at 1.02 billion. That figure is based on Comscore figures covering desktop and mobile audiences across the United States, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Spain and the United Kingdom.

BroadbandTV also said it’s No. 1 across all media companies in terms of total monthly watch time, with 46.9 billion minutes across the same 12 countries. Today, BroadbandTV said it achieves 38 billion video views on a monthly basis and that its total annual video viewership has increased at a compound annual growth rate of 102% from 2014 to 2018, raising its total to 405 billion video views in 2018.

“With unprecedented growth and an unwavering commitment to profitability, we continue to lead our peer group in all key measures, including unique viewers and watch-time,” said Shahrzad Rafati, founder and CEO of BroadbandTV, in a statement. “We’re building one of the most successful media technology companies in the world from the West Coast of Canada, and despite all that we have achieved, this is really just the beginning.”

BroadbandTV is growing not as a content creator, but as a distributor for other creators. The company provides management, distribution and monetization solutions to content owners and has built proprietary technologies that use deep learning, signal processing and big data.

BroadbandTV was founded in 2005 and in 2013 the RTL Group acquired a 51% stake in the company for $36 million.
