When you think about video streaming, you might think about services like Netflix or Hulu that deliver live content. But if you’re interested in creating original video content, you must think about video streaming differently. What if there was a platform that not only delivered live content but also provided analytics on viewership, engagement, and advertising performance? Today Mux announced the close of a $105 million Series D funding round. It’s being led by Coatue Management and includes participation from existing investors Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Foundation Capital. Mux is now valued at $1 billion.
