Much like its competitors (ABC, CBS, and NBC) Fox has decided to block Google TV from accessing its website to stream video content. Currently if you go to any of the networks website you’re met with an error message that reads, “This content is not compatible with your device“. Does it make any sense that networks are blocking content from …
Not only is Hulu being blocked on Google TV, but so is the content at network sites like ABC, NBC, and CBS. Essentially, the TV stations are just blocking people from watching their content on the web (via their own sites). I’m having a hard time figuring out why this makes sense for a variety of reasons.
First of all, Google TV is simply providing a web browser for users to access web content on their TVs. With regard to the content, it’s no different than if you were to hook up your computer to your TV and go to these stations’ sites.
Disney/ABC and Nielsen have announced a new iPad app. The app is the first to be built on Nielsen’s new Media-Sync Platform, and uses audio watermarks to sync mobile devices to TV Programming.

Last Tuesday, the season premiere of the hit television show "Lost" aired, and not only was it watched by over 12 million people, but it drove record online viewing at ABC.com the next day, with over 580,000 episode starts on the site. That’s over 34% more than last season’s premiere. ABC shared some details with us.
The mainstream media has its head in the sand again while one of the largest conspiracies the world has ever seen is exposed via Internet media. As most readers have heard by now, years of emails and programming code have been uncovered from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, which is run by the scientists whose research is the basis for the world’s belief in man-caused global warming.
More print publishers are focusing on the mobile market as a way to expand their brands, reach new audiences and generate additional revenue while offering advertisers the chance to reach locally targeted engaged audiences, according to a new survey from the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC).

Netflix will now begin streaming the first five seasons of "Lost," seasons four and five of "Desperate Housewives," season five of "Grey’s Anatomy," and seasons one and two of "Legend of the Seeker." Many of the episodes, including the first four seasons of "Lost" are now available on Netflix. The rest will be available in the coming months, beginning in September.
Compete is pointing to some interesting data, and suggesting that Hulu’s "evil plot to take over the world" might just be working. The popular video site has surpassed NBC, FOX and ABC’s websites in traffic for the first time. And that was last month.
"The networks’ traffic declined during the summer rerun season, but Hulu seems relatively unaffected," notes Compete’s Seth Madison.
A little more than three months ago, we learned of rumors that Hulu and ABC might partner. About two months ago, they did. And now, the arrangement’s finally reached a stage at which real people can see the fruits, as ABC’s content is becoming available on Hulu.
"Grey’s Anatomy" is the first show you’ll be able to see, with five episodes from the most recent season online now. Granted, this isn’t a huge selection (and "Grey’s Anatomy" may not be the ABC television series you’ve been dying to see more of, anyway), but it’s a start.
Yesterday the New York Times spoke of the ‘success’ of Yahoo during this election marathon that is thankfully winding up (I hope) in the next 48 hours. This election process has been a boon for news sites and the equivalent of a ‘millstone around the neck’ for people like me. How much more can one say or do or think or accuse or lie or point fingers about at this point?

The practice of offering "makegood inventory" isn’t television-specific – you’ll often see a retail-store equivalent when something is substituted for an out-of-stock sale item. Only it seems that ABC and advertisers are beginning to embrace the idea of online makegoods.
Disney.com said today the site will stream full-length movies online for the first time in the company’s history.
The films will first be broadcast on ABC as part of the network’s weekly Wonderful World of Disney feature on Saturday nights throughout the summer. The full-length movies will be available for free streaming the week after they air on the network.
Feeling safe in the knowledge that I could catch up online, I skipped "Lost" last Thursday night and watched PBS’s "Carrier" instead. Then, on the ABC website, everything worked fine. But in the future, watching shows on the ABC site may be a little more annoying thanks to extra commercials.
Disney-ABC Television Group will begin testing next week of running multiple ads with longform online videos on ABC.com.
"It would be premature for us to say people only want one ad," Albert Cheng, executive vp digital media at DATG, told THR. "It’s a likely sort of thinking, but we want to push it a little bit to see how it would go."
Disney-ABC Television Group and AOL announced today the availability of full-length episodes of primetime shows on AOL Video.

As part of an agreement with ABC News, Yahoo is beginning to offer BBC News video on its site. Yahoo! users will now have access to approximately 30 video clips of BBC News video each day, including a large assortment of videos pertaining to most major news and entertainment genres.
As many people predicted when Rocketboom host Amanda Congdon split up so acrimoniously with her former partner Andrew Baron (which I wrote about here), it didn’t take long for someone to see the potential benefit of having an attractive video-blogger with a built-in following on their payroll.
Are your sales people burnt out? You may want to check. Have they clocked too many twelve hour days? Do they have enough frequent flier miles to charter a jet to Mars? Are their faces permanently skewed into perpetual smiles from chatting with hundreds of thousands of trade show attendees?
Yesterday a Russian rocket carrying a 3-man international crew was launched from Kazakhstan.
Earlier this morning, a Russian rocket was launched from Kazakhstan carrying a 3-man international crew. The rocket’s destination is the International Space Station and its mission is to relieve the current ISS crew.
No, the Google Video search tool is not for finding naughty videos-use Yahoo Video for that (please, if you have kids, set on it’s filter). Google Video, on the other hand, is a product of Google Labs and it enables you to search their growing archive of televised content, by looking for words in the transcript.
Talk of increased production from OPEC has had a roller-coaster effect on oil prices recently. Yesterday, when talk of the increase was introduced, oil prices increased. Today, however, has seen the opposite occur.
Cybercast News Service reports that on Wednesday bloggers were quick to pick up on a message posted on the ABC News website …
As more entrepreneurs enter into online commerce, many make a common mistake: they get so involved with the technology that they forget that there’s a live person on the other side of the computer screen. They forget that they’re dealing with PEOPLE.
