Internet TV Finally Arrives

01-Nov-05 09:18 pm EST Leave a comment Go to comments
Well the ComedyCentral Television Network appears to become the first of fthe major cable broadcasters to finally offer free programming on the Internet starting today.  Clips have been offered now for some time at the ComedyCentral website, but starting today they’ve started to offer a number of full-length programs.
 
The technology used appears to by a blend of Windows Media Server and possibly other technologies (didn’t see any mac stuff, but they could be offering that via dynamic browser detection).  The name of the service is "Motherload" and extends a number of browser-based control features to let you decide what programming you want to see over the course of your session.
 
Programs I took in tonight while working:
  • The Colbert Report
  • The Daily Show
  • The Chapelle Show

Some of the programs highlighted are older (like Chapelle), but will likely get picked up and distributed on the web alongside the regular TV schedule as production continues through the fall and into winter.

 

Again, here’s hoping this is yet more evidence that the entertainment biz is finally getting the picture and using the Internet in a lawsuit-free way. 😉
