The platform allows users to post and share videos, and aims to allow creators to monetize and distribute video content across the Internet. According to comScore, the platform is currently one of the top 50 most popular video sharing sites.
As of September 2017, Rumble is said to attract over 250 million views a month from 100 million active users. The platform uses artificial intelligence to license and verify content before it is published, as well as distribute and monetize published content.
Rumble was founded in 2013 by its current CEO Chris Pavlovski. In 2016, the company partnered with Getty Images, and in the same year partnered with ProSiebenSat.1 Media. On June 28, 2016, the company had a trademark registration for the word "rumble" approved by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
In July 2017, Rumble filed a lawsuit against DMG Media, publishers of the British daily newspaper the Daily Mail, for copyright infringement on a number of videos published on the platform. On January 9, 2018, DMG Media had a motion to transfer the case from the Central District of California to the Southern District of New York dismissed by the presiding judge Philip S. Gutierrez.
