Maven Networks will roll out an online TV solution with news publisher Gannett’s USAToday website and 150 other websites.

In September, Fox News tapped Maven for its Internet TV technology. Major news publisher Gannett has followed suit, Maven announced today.

Gannett will use Maven to deliver ad-supported news video on its various news sites. Their audience should be in the neighborhood of 22 million visitors per month, which according to Nielsen//NetRatings was 14.3 percent of the total US Internet audience in October.

"Our Information Center approach to news and information relies on multimedia, and video is a key element of our news and information offerings on all our Web sites – whether they are related to our newspapers or TV stations," Gannett Digital president Jack Williams said in a statement.

The key to success will be the advertising Maven can enable Gannett to deliver. A variety of customization options for the Maven media player can make it resemble the look and feel of various Gannett properties.

Advertisements can receive similar treatment, a feature Gannett certainly will promote as the company pitches big-name brands and other advertisers as Maven unfolds across its properties.

A Maven spokesperson said the technology should be available on USAToday.com in the first quarter of 2008.

Since boyhood, I’m very addicted to work in associations for humanistic purposes. Actually, with the help of some retired men; high studies students, primary school teachers….etc; we built an association for the same aims. Hoping to fill the gapes of our governmental responsibilities towards all the citizens. Unfortunatly; the errors our responsibles committed in the past entailed many structural, dangerous problems and impediments for a real development. Therefore,you are welcome to join us for this universally known aims.I hope that you will help us by providing us with English books and magazines(though they may be dated). Fighting such world’s most disgusting social ills can’t be in one day and necessitates huge potentials which our beginner association needs a lot like medical equipments since our area is known for it’s frightning numbers deaths among women and our humanistic compaign needs computers and such tools for teaching illiterate people. The past events between Islam and its rivals; which some of our unconscious,short-sighted religious Imams are still spreading though it’s time for such old-fashioned histories to disappear; entail conflicts and unseen hostilities that we are striving to sweep away through cultural negociations, and constructive exchange of ideas and cooperation instead of daggers.So; I hope to receive your aids as soon as possible to fulfill our hope of a common library for the students from different academic levels. we also hope to receive funds for creating some public-spirited micro projects for the poor and disabled people here. Youness.
