Exploring TV's Takeoff on the Internet

All Things Considered, May 9, 2007 · People are already calling 2007 the year of Internet television, and within the past few months, TV networks have officially jumped into the business.

The founders of the popular web sites Kazaa and Skype are launching their latest project, an Internet TV venture called Joost. At the same time, indie web TV shows and programs with big backers are trying to make money.

Jeremy Allaire, founder and CEO of Brightcove, a company that has built thousands of Internet "channels" for its clients as well as runs its own, talks to Robert Siegel about the growing industry.

We also hear from Dan Rayburn, executive vice president of Streaming Media, an industry trade publication, and from Janus Friis and Niklas Zennstrom of Joost.
