Following Apple’s introduction of the video iPod I heard lots of comments along the lines of, “What would anybody watch on a little screen like that?” Comedy Central has some ideas:
The Motherload Net will consist of five video-based channels featuring a mix of clips from Comedy Central’s programming as well as original content produced specifically for the broadband network.
“We’ve taken everything that is great about Comedy Central and shifted it into broadband,” explained Comedy Central president Doug Herzog. “They can program it themselves.”
The channels, offering more than 450 video clips at launch, are: Originals, TV Shows, The Daily Show with John Stewart, Comedians, and Cult Classics. Each channel will be updated five days a week, with a total of 50-80 new clips being added each week.
So this is what freefall feels like.
