Funny or Die?!

If you haven't seen this video take a few minutes, its the funniest thing I have seen in a LONG time. But more then just a one shot video, this 2 minute piece is being used to solidify the Will Ferrell Adam McKay production partnership. Having gone up late last week it has already garnered close to 3 million hits!

TRIO goes Broadband

Bravo breaks ground on the broadband front and announces aggressive plans to launch a suite of branded broadband channels in 2006. The two initial broadband channels being announced today are TRIOtv.com, the first-ever TV channel to move to broadband, and BrilliantButCancelled.com. Each broadband channel will be available in the U.S. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will be advertiser supported. The announcement was made today by Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo, during Bravo's presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour.

"Broadband gives Bravo the opportunity to move beyond the constraints of a linear analog service and deliver content 24 hours a day to our devoted viewer base in the areas they are most passionate about," said Zalaznick.

The roll-out begins in January with the launch of TRIOtv.com as a stand alone broadband service and additional broadband channels will continue to roll-out throughout 2006. BravoTV.com, the overall hub under which the suite of broadband channels will live, will feature exclusive original content produced for the site including rich broadband-focused microsites from Bravo's shows ranging from Project Runway to Top Chef. Not limited to what is on-air, the site will also feature exclusive video, pop culture blogs, never-before-seen interviews and footage, as well as viewer generated interactive components.

Rick/Reuters

"There is no doubt people are going to access content in more flexible ways going forward," said Rick Feldman, who heads the National Association of Television Program Executives.

"What we don't know, for independent producers, is what kind of content is going to be wanted and needed, what it will cost and what it can be made for," he added.

Online on my Mind

Mr. Allaire intends to shake up an industry - this time, the world of television - by allowing all types of video producers, from media giants to anyone who has a camcorder, put their work on the Internet and make money if anyone watches it.

-The NY Times in one story...

Video delivered over the Internet, which has been embraced by media and Internet giants like Viacom and Yahoo, is quickly shaping up as a way for smaller producers to reach an audience without having to cut deals with movie studios and the big networks that are the traditional gatekeepers of television.

...and in another.  Trend?
