phil-paulaFounder Phil Autelitano is a leading channel developer for connected television platforms including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Opera TV systems. He has created and produced some of the most popular channels on Connected TV including the all-new Paula Deen Channel, Oscar de la Hoya’s Ring TV, Raw Country, The Movie Trailer Channel, The Video Game Channel, Classic Rock TV, Screamin’ Metal, and many others.

In 2014, Phil Autelitano launched Raw Country, now one of the most popular music video channels on Connected TV, followed by 26 other popular music, food, lifestyle, and special interest channels under the Mediarazzi and Big Brands Entertainment labels. These channels reach a combined audience of more than 100 million viewers weekly across all platforms.

In 2015, Mediarazzi stepped in to “rescue” celebrity chef Paula Deen after she lost her cable TV show amid a brief media scandal, partnering with Paula and her team to develop the all-new Paula Deen Channel and quickly getting her back on TV to the delight of her millions of fans.

Later that year, Mediarazzi partnered with boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya to develop Ring TV — the official TV channel of “The Ring Magazine,” boxing’s oldest publication, followed by a second Golden Boy channel for Oscar’s Golden Boy Promotions.

In 2016, Mediarazzi launched AdNexxta video advertising network for connected television channels that offers low-cost, high-impact advertising to advertisers and increased revenue opportunities to connected television channels.

Mediarazzi receives several requests daily for consulting and project management for Connected TV channel development, content management, content distribution, and content- and channel/app monetization across all platforms including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TVOpera, etc. Phone, remote- and on-site consulting and project management is available. We also assist with content acquisition and distribution for Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.
