As part of Google’s “Original Programming” initiative, Ponk is commencing activity as the first, German-language channel. The creator of the concept was, among others, Philipp Laude. The first official film has resulted in 100,000 subscribers, and soon after that the number has grown to almost half a million. Many different people took part in the production of the legendary Ponk-WG. After more than two years of activity, the channel became a role model for other Owned and Operated productions.
