Hulu.com Joins Web Video Competition
NBC and Fox are set to launch an advertising-supported online
video site called Hulu.com
in an attempt to draw some of the eyeballs away
from YouTube. A test version of the Web site went live yesterday, and the permanent
site is scheduled to be available early next year.
Hulu.com will host programming from the two networks, as well as TV shows and
films from Sony and MGM. It will provide viewers with tools that let them embed
full episodes on their own blogs, Web sites or personal profile pages. However,
it doesn't look like it will permit users to post home-grown videos.
Do we need another video site? Do you want to watch old TV shows and movies
online? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
