Joining the likes of SplashCast and CozmoTV is WorldTV, a new internet video startup currently bootstrapping in Ireland that is a result of 10 years of planning and ideas.

Like SplashCast and CozmoTV, WorldTV aims to allow people to create their own personal TV channels from existing videos posted around the net.

Private Beta

WorldTV is currently in private beta and I was lucky enough to get a personal invite from the WorldTV CEO, Alx Klive.

WorldTV is extremely simple to use and you are guided through every step. Name your channel; select some videos and you are away. It currently supports videos from Google, YouTube, AOL and Yahoo.

Once your channel is created it will be given a web address like (that’s a channel I quickly threw up).

Editing your channel

The editing of the channel is extremely user friendly too. You can search video sites within the editing suite and quickly add them to your channel by dragging and dropping.

Improvements needed

There is definitely room for improvement such as:

  • The ability to load up the whole playlist while watching the channel so you can skip between videos
  • An information bar that pops up when you move the mouse so you can see the details on what is playing.
  • The ability to remember what you have watched previously so the channel doesn’t start playing old videos.
  • The ability to embed the channel in other websites.

Having said that WorldTV looks extremely promising and I’ll be keeping a close eye on its progress. It is expected to launch publicly within 2 months.
