Variety reports that music website Vevo has struck a deal with MTV to publish videos from the show. Starting today, Monday, August 29, Vevo began publishing VMA videos for streaming on its site and apps. Videos will also post to Vevo’s YouTube channel and other partner distribution platforms.

Once an upstart rival to MTV with its own 24-hour online music video channel, Vevo has since abandoned those efforts to focus on its website and apps, with plans for a paid subscription service later on. In other words, Variety wrote, “Vevo now wants to take on Spotify.”
