The IconicTV Story




IconicTV combines one of the top management teams in media, channels with top tier talent, and a unique vision for the long-term prospects for this new over-the-top space.

A new kind of digital entertainment company, IconicTV is dedicated to building the best multi-channel network. We leverage the formidable footprints of top-tier, best-in-class brands to create the world’s highest quality MCN (multi-channel network) and OTT (over-the-top) media platform.

IconicTV is headed by the unbeatable team of Larry Aidem and Michael Hirschorn, seasoned media executives with broad experience in both traditional and digital media, and incomparable track records. Larry managed the Sundance Channel from the ground up and in 10 years sold it for $500 million. In his four year tenure as head of programming at VH1, Michael doubled ratings and more than tripled revenue.  A unique ability to leverage their traditional media know-how in this new digital landscape makes Larry and Michael poised to succeed.

As part of the Google initiative to improve the quality of programming on the YouTube platform, IconicTV was one of just a handful of companies to win three channels with the highest level of financial support from YouTube.  In 2012, IconicTV launched myISH, JAY Z’s Life+Times and 123UnoDosTres.  We continued to expand with the addition of POTATO, an electronic dance music channel with Diplo, Skrillex and A-Trak, and the Todrick Hall channel, and more channels will be coming soon.
