Jeff's Quick Guide to TV on the Net
So, are you one of those hopping on the Internet TV train? Well I am, and we found a great listing of web based TV channels at the Jeff Pulver Blog. According to Jeff:
During the past twelve months, as the momentum for Broadband TV has snowballed, an increasing number of media companies have decided to take their content and make it available for viewing on the Internet. In some cases, the content offered is "re-runs" of prime time content, in other cases the Internet is being used to channel "vintage" programming (re-runs of old programs) and there is an increasing number of cases in which new content is being developed by media companies for just the broadband Internet. By default, the viewing experience is being offered to people assuming a Windows desktop. It is the mobile users (Symbian and Windows Mobile) who are most "content-viewing challenged". Some of the content owners are using variations of Flash and others are using Quicktime and Windows Media to deliver their content.
Here are just a few of the sites he lists:
A&E Video - "Weekly highlights video clips available."
ABC Video on Demand - "Shows most popular news videos."
ABC Family - "Can watch full episodes of your favorite ABC family original series and movies for free."
Adult Swim - "Can watch clips of all Adult Swim programs as well as download MP3s."
AOL Television - "In2TV is the first broadband network and it's got the largest collection of free TV shows anywhere on the web. Not just highlights or listings, but full-length TV episodes with a range of choices and loads of interactive features. Online. Anytime. Always free."
AMC Video - "AMC Video allows you to browse through movies and see clips."
Animal Planet Beyond (Pet Trends) - "Can watch original Pet Trends webisodes. Other clips are available such as pet tricks, dog stars, caught in the moment, and the world's ugliest dogs."
