AOL, Warner Bros. Offer Broadband TV Programming
America Online and Warner Bros. today announced that the two companies will begin offering broadband television programming on AOL's web site. The two are launching a new network called In2TV, which will stream full length episodes from Warner Bros. shows over broadband. The network will include series such as Welcome Back Kotter, Bettlejuice, and La Femme Nikita. The two companies said that the content will also be tied into quizzes and other tie-ins. AOL will offer the series in a new video format called AOL Hi-Q, a DVD-quality, high resolution video format and will include video ads, 15-second, and 30-second ad spots. The move is a part of a recent move by Internet providers into the video sharing and broadcasting business.
