VRV has lately been adding channel partners like DramaFever and Mubi in an effort to grow its available library of content. Other channel partners include CuriosityStream, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth and Nerdist.

Late last year, VRV revealed it had 1.5 million registered users and more than 1 million monthly active users. The company now says it has more than 2 million registered users.

“We’re really happy with the way we’re scaling,” said Marmel, adding that VRV is seeing good consumption on average.

The service, which launched in October 2016, said that it has racked up more than 1 billion minutes (or 15 million hours) of watch time and 50 million video views. Marmel said that the average user spends 3 hours per week watching video on VRV, but that premium users spend 5 hours per week (43 minutes per day) on average.
