LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 14, 2006--Break.com, the largest digital entertainment network for men with 13 million unique visitors and 300 million video requests monthly, today announced it has launched video syndication tools that enable content creators to distribute their videos to iPods and Sony PSPs. Break.com audience members can now receive automatic updates from their favorite content creators, as well as easily migrate their personal and viral video collections to any device.

The first site of its kind to introduce this functionality, these multi-platform syndication tools offer Break.com content creators another option to increase exposure for their work; fans of Break will now be able to subscribe to their favorite creators and receive up to the minute updates on new content, right in the palms of their hands.

"Two years ago we were excited to be the first out of the gate to compensate users for content, and now we are equally excited to be the first to offer viral video syndication tools," said Keith Richman, CEO of Break.com. "Given the importance of portable devices to our audience of men 15-35, it was clear to us that these tools could help further drive the democratization of content and the empowerment of the individual as both a content creator and a programmer."
