NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- YOU On Demand Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: YOD) ("YOU On Demand" or the "Company"), a leading Video On Demand service provider in China delivering Hollywood movies to mobile and TV screens, today announced its operating results for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2014 (a full copy of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q will be posted at www.sec.gov).  Chairman Shane McMahon, CEO Weicheng Liu and President and CFO Marc Urbach are hosting an investor update conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET to discuss the Company's recent results.  To join the webcast, please visit the 'Webcasts and Events' section of the YOD corporate website, http://corporate.yod.com.  Otherwise, the toll-free dial-in is: 877/407-3107; international callers should dial: 201/493-6796.

Shane McMahon, Chairman of YOU On Demand, commented, "During the first half of 2014 we successfully pivoted the Company's strategy and its resources to prioritize our IPTV, OTT and Mobile platforms. Given the exciting potential of these fast-growing distribution modes, which are increasingly popular amongst China's tech-savvy and most active consumers of entertainment, YOU On Demand expects to continue generating positive momentum from this strategic shift. As a result, we expect to generate both improved operating efficiencies and enhanced financial results during the second half of this year."

YOU On Demand CEO Weicheng Liu, stated, "Building on the growing popularity of our YOU Hollywood App with Huawei device users, Xiaomi OTT Box owners and other early adopters, we recently softly launched our Hollywood App independently via popular app stores and online channels.  We believe select advertising, marketing and social media outreach, combined with word-of-mouth recommendations and endorsements from satisfied App users, will help promote our unique, differentiated service to an appreciative audience of China's most ardent movie fans."

YOU On Demand President & CFO Marc Urbach commented, "During this critical phase in our organization's corporate development, the senior financial and operations teams will continue striving to combine our strong, unlevered balance sheet, with conservative expense management and moderate levels of fixed overhead costs. There are many opportunities that lie ahead and we expect to best leverage these by maintaining our fiscally prudent strategy for the long-term benefit of the Company's shareholders."

Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 increased to $183,000, up from $51,000 in the year-ago Q2 and up 33% over Q1 2014.   Gross loss for the quarter declined to $674,000, down from $739,000 in the comparable 2013 period.
