According to Ms. Ostroff, CNE  have  been quietly making some serious inroads into the field of video distribution, having  made a series of  planned  investments   in development costs to get them there.

That figure is liable to rise dramatically in the coming months with the planned launch of “ The Scene”, specifically designed and produced  for CNE to make it easier for viewers to discover new video content, with

According to Fred Santarpia, chief digital officer for CNE,  the company had become increasingly aware that while they were enjoying considerable success in distributing the content broadly around the web, the presence of a central base was sadly lacking.

“There was no home where you could easily go from channel to channel, and that was the impetus for us to try and build something new and something different.” Santarpia surmised.

When “ The Scene”, gets under way, it will that hosts all of CNE’s content, covering  14 video channels, also taking in three new channels Bon Appétit, The New Yorker and Lucky all of which are due to be launched by the end of the year..

Bon Appetit,  the first channel scheduled  to be launched, sometime in June,  will cover  travel, cooking and restaurants.

Together  “ The Scene” will be offering viewers  a choice of  100 new and returning series across the network, as well as a wide choice  of videos from Allure, Bon Appétit, Epicurious, Glamour, Golf Digest, GQ, Lucky Self,, Teen Vogue, Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Wired.

To make the package even more attractive, “ The Scene”,  will also feature  content from a number of CNE’s current   partners including  ABC News, BuzzFeed, Major League Soccer, Variety, Weather Channel Films and Jash.

Announcing the channel’s remarkable developments in the one year since it was founded, Dawn Ostroff stated  that  the CNE  has already established and  the industry standard for providing  award-winning original video content that millions of influential Millennials are watching and sharing”

“The addition of The Scene, which will feature content from all of our powerful branded channels, and premium digital videos from leading traditional and digital media companies, will increase our reach to entirely new audiences, with CNE content estimated to surpass one billion views this year.” Summed up Ms. Ostroff.

Condé Nast Entertainment was formed  in 2011 by Condé Nast, the New York based mass media company owned by the Newhouse family to develop film, television and digital video programming.

Launched only in  2013, CNE’s digital video network has already begun to pick up some major industry accolades,   including a  Producers Guild of America Award for their information video series “Wired: What’s Inside”, an Emmy nomination for “Casualties of the Gridiron” as well as  14 Webby nominations.

In addition to her busy work schedule, Ms. Ostroff devotes some of her free time  to working with several important charity  organizations such as A Place Called Home, which helps deprived  children in South Central Los Angeles,  the Independent School Alliance as well as the American Jewish Committee.
