The story of DISCO

Breaking boundaries in content licensing and distribution since 2007.

About DISCO

DISCO is an innovative and revolutionary digital content marketplace, where editors, content marketers, producers and program directors can access, search for and acquire an instant license, to use, or republish premium content, all fully rights-cleared.

DISCO combines proprietary technology, along with world-class journalism and other licensed content. Our services are essential to publishers, broadcasters, agencies, brands, production companies, app developers and telcos, who are hungry for trustworthy, multi-lingual content, that generates audiences and drives revenue.

What’s behind the name DISCO? Sorry to disappoint, but DISCO has nothing to do with a genre of dance music containing elements of funk and soul. Our DISCO is the place to discover content for re-use.

Who are we?

We are a highly experienced and passionate team who believe that the dissemination of quality information is key to an informed, educated and entertained world. Our goal is to power the content campaigns and editorial programs of publishers, broadcasters, SVOD platforms, brands and more with engaging, easy to license words, images, video, sound and data.

DISCO is the future of licensed content. Join the party.
