Clicker.com Links With UCLA
Los Angeles-based Clicker Media, the online video guide service funded by Benchmark Capital and Redpoint Ventures, said that it has linked with the University of California, Los Angeles, with a branded version of the service specifically for UCLA students. The site--which is run by Jim Lanzone, the former CEO of Ask.com--said that the partnership will provide both online entertainment and university video content through UCLA's web portal. Clicker said the UCLA on Clicker site will give UCLA students both access to original videos from UCLA, as well as access to other online entertainment from ABC, MTV, PBS, Hulu, YouTube, and other sites and sources. Financial details of the effort were not disclosed, however, Clicker said no student dollars were used to develop the site, and the site will be available for free to UCLA students.
