November 8, 2005
SAN DIEGO – November 8, 2005 – Veoh Networks, Inc., the first Internet Television Peercasting Network, today announced that more than 10,000 video episodes are now available on the Veoh network (www.veoh.com). The company’s software has been available in beta for six weeks, resulting in thousands of user registrations and daily viewers.
“We are happy that content producers and viewers are finding Veoh to be a great place to publish and find Internet television content,” said Dmitry Shapiro, CEO of Veoh Networks. “With more than 10,000 video episodes available today, there is something for everyone, and we expect the numbers to rise dramatically over the next few weeks.”
Mr. Shapiro will present the Veoh vision and share some of the network’s content today at the Dow Jones Consumer Ventures conference in Redwood City, Calif. The conference selects leading private and corporate investors, company executives and entrepreneurs to reveal exactly which innovative startup technologies, strategies and companies are in position to take advantage of digital consumers.
Veoh software, installed on consumers’ PCs or Macs, creates a virtual television network that is able to distribute TV-quality, full-screen broadcast video to hundreds of millions of users with broadband Internet connections. Motion picture studios, television networks, organizations and individuals can publish unlimited amounts of broadcast video content to the network, providing consumers with unparalleled choice in television programming and control over their viewing experience.
Unlike rogue P2P networks used to share mostly pirated video, Veoh is a community of publishers and consumers, where published content is approved by editors, and consumers are assured they get what they request. The system also integrates tightly with RSS, providing content producers with easy publishing to multiple video systems.
