Veoh | The internet video sharing website that specializes in prefessional and semi-professional internet TV shows.
Veoh.com say it’s just making online video easier for users to access. But major content providers, such as NBC and Fox, aren’t convinced that VeohTV is a fair and equitable way for its TV shows to be screened to the masses.
It’s an interesting dilemma. VeohTV, by its own definition, is a “virtual television network”. Basically it collates third party video content and re-transmits the shows within its own branded web browser-like software application – all with the genuine intent of making web TV more accessible. (Check out this post for an excellent description).
The VeohTV software, which is still in a beta testing phase not available to the public, currently has 114 easy to navigate channels. The contentious issue is that most, if not all, of the content on these channels is showcased without the permission of the content provider.
