Hulu begins rolling out ABC shows

Online video site Hulu has begun adding content from TV network ABC to its site. Hulu and ABC's parent company Disney announced a partnership deal back in April, but today is the first day you can actually find ABC content on Hulu... just not very much of it. Hulu is starting with Grey's Anatomy, and has plans to roll out other shows including Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Scrubs, and I...

NBC Direct relaunches: Free video downloads of NBC TV shows

NBC has relaunched its NBC Direct video download service. Honestly, ever since Hulu launched, I haven't thought much about NBC Direct, which I first covered back in 2007. There aren't any videos available from NBC Direct that you can't find on Hulu, and the clunky DRM and download application make NBC Direct much more difficult to use than the web based player. Still, NBC Direct has two...

Open source video player, aggregator Miro goes 2.0

The team behind open source internet video player Miro have pushed out version 2.0. The new player features a new interface, improved speed and performance, and the ability for users to add links to online streaming video portals like Hulu and CBS.com to the sidebar. Unlike other internet video players which are primarily focused on offering streaming video content, Miro is built for...

First came pirated copies of TV shows being traded over the internet by fans the BBC iPlayer service which lets UK residents watch any TV program that's aired in the last seven days. Now the BBC plans to stream BBC1 content live over the internet. The new streaming service will go live sometime int he next few months. The BBC already streams content from several of its news channels live, but...

Hulu acknowledges existence of TV viewers outside of the US

Online video site Hulu has gotten a lot of good press over the last few months for actually offering up full-length TV shows and movies that you might actually want to watch. There are hundreds of episodes of popular TV shows from networks like Fox and NBC, and movies from partners including Fox, Universal, and MGM. There's just one problem, you can only stream these videos if you live in the...

Blinkx launches internet TV software

Because the world didn't already have enough internet TV applications bringing you B-list movies and video podcasts, online video site Blinkx has entered the fray. Blinkx Broadband TV has all the usual bells and whistles including the ability to stream high quality video from the internet, watch in fullscreen, and browse through a list of "channels" with independent films, comedy clips, movie...

Netflix expands online video service

Netflix customers have had the option to watch selected videos on a PC without waiting for a DVD to show up in the mail since earlier this year. But up until recently there were three major restrictions on the service: It only works with Windows. You could only watch a limited number of hours of programming per month. The selection was on the small and obscure side. While the service is...

Adobe launches Adobe Media Player

Adobe has launched a new standalone media player that's a bit like a cross between Miro and Adobe Digital Editions. While Adobe's Flash player for web browsers has become the default media utility for viewing online video in a browser, it seems like there's a mad dash to create standalone media browsers. The reasoning is sound: Web browsers are meant for viewing text and images. Multimedia...

Joost beta 1.0 released for Mac and Windows

Defying all conventional logic, Joost has upgraded its internet TV client to version 1.0 -- and it's still in beta. That means you can only download Joost 1.0 if you're a current beta tester, or if you know someone kind enough to send you an invitation. There are a few new features and performance tweaks in Joost 1.0 beta, including a modified user interface, larger icons, and the ability to...

AOL to stream ABC TV programs online

If you want to rent a video, you can go to pretty much any video store and walk out with a movie of your choice. It doesn't matter what studio produced that film. But if you want to watch streaming video of network television programs, you either need to visit the network's website or find a site that streams pirated copies. It looks like that could be changing. Increasingly we're seeing networks...
