Netflix and CBS sign deal for more streaming shows

Netflix has just signed a deal to add CBS shows to its streaming library. The two-year agreement means Netflix subscribers can watch Medium, Frasier, Cheers, Star Trek, Twin Peaks and more via the Watch Instantly feature. Unfortunately for viewers, CBS is still wary of putting recent or currently-running shows on Netflix, because they want to keep the reruns (and the ad revenue) for themselves. ...

Adult Swim app brings full episodes and games to iPad and iPhone

Adult Swim is brining its lineup of shows and games to the iPad and iPhone via a new, free app. The app lets you watch full episodes of Adult Swim favorites, including Venture Brothers, Robot Chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and it also serves as a dashboard for Adult Swim games. Many of the games are paid apps -- usually priced at a reasonable 99 cents -- which is the same price you'd pay...

NBC TV show The Cape debuts on the iPad

NBC introduced a new TV show yesterday, although it made its debut not in the Peacock's schedule, but in DC Comics' iPad app. Confused? The Cape, a new TV show about a cop who is wrongfully accused of a crime and becomes a secret crime fighter, is set to premiere this Sunday on NBC. However, iPad users can already watch its pilot episode by downloading the DC Comics app. You'll be able to watch...

Google TV site launches, answers a lot of questions

Google TV is coming -- and judging by the new Google TV website, it's coming soon. Via the medium of shiny, black, stylish imagery, the site goes a long way to answering any and all questions you might have about the service. For sitting-in-the-living-room TV watchers it sounds really cool. If you sit at your computer all day, however, the feature list feels a little mundane. If you want...

Canadian court deciding if ISPs are content providers

Canada requires the television and radio industries to adhere to Canada's Broadcasting Act, which is governed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). Currently, ISPs are not considered broadcasters, and it's pretty obvious to anyone with half a brain that they should not be. However, the CRTC has escalated this issue to the Federal Court of Appeal in order to...

DivX launches Internet TV platform

DivX, the popular multimedia codec, is branching out at CES this year! They've just announced the launch of DivX TV. But what is it? DivX TV is a way to bring content from the Internet directly to your television without the need for a PC. DivX TV just needs a name-brand TV or Blu-ray player and gives you immediate access to web videos, television shows, movies and even social networking...

Hulu pumps up its search tool. Now you can search for specific episodes or seasons!

It's one of those things that you'd expect all large sites to have, but for some reason or another, Hulu has always had a bit of a gimpy search engine. You kind of typed stuff in... and prayed the site knew what you were looking for. But that's just changed! Just in time too, with the deluge of festive programming that's about to hit their website. Yes, Hulu now has an Advanced Search: rejoice...

Clicker: (Another) One stop shop for web video

Look, there are a lot of places to find online video these days. And in many ways, Clicker is just another one of these sites. But the service, which launched in private beta at TechCrunch 50 this week certainly has a lot going for it. First off, in terms of content, it's hard to find a site with a better list of web video including network TV shows, webisodes, and high quality content from...

Fox to live-stream Twitter comments during Fringe, Glee reruns

Broadcast television is full of reruns. No surprise there. And the truth is, plenty of people will watch rebroadcasts of television programs. In fact, it was recently reported that The Late Show with David Letterman was beating The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien in the ratings -- even though Letterman was in reruns while Conan was producing new episodes. But generally reruns aren't as exciting...

Streaming TV comes to Canada thanks to CTV

Pretty much every time we publish an article about Hulu or other web sites that let visitors watch full length streaming television episodes, someone leaves a comment pointing out that the service only works in the US. That's generally because these web sites don't have the distribution rights (and advertising deals) needed to stream these programs in other countries -- even countries that are...

Hulu pulls video from TV.com

Last month TV.com relaunched its web site as a video portal with full length streaming episodes of TV shows, social features, and IMDB-like info about TV show casts, episodes info, and other information. TV.com is owned by CBS, so obviously CBS content was available, but the bulk of the full length episodes were provided by Hulu -- until today. It appears Hulu has removed its content from...

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...

BBC to broadcast live TV streams on the internet

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...

Redlasso offers bloggers TV/radio searchable database, but it's in trouble!

Redlasso is a database stuffed with the latest TV and radio programming, allowing registered users to search for and "lasso" out clips in order to imbed them on other sites. "Virtually all media" (TV, Radio, streaming internet programming, podcasts) is indexed in almost real-time, says the Redlasso site. Although the company swears it is negotiating deals with several content partners,...

Apple promises refunds, free videos to iTunes season pass holders

Apple's iTunes customers have the option of buying TV shows for $1.99 per episode, or paying a flat fee for a full season. Now, most of the time, you save a few bucks by paying for the whole season at once. But there was this little writer's strike thingamajig this year, which kind of threw a monkey wrench into that equation. Some television series, like NBC's Heroes had just a handful of new...
