A new YouTube?

While Google/YouTube (GooTube) are fighting off a trillion dollar lawsuit brought on by Viacom, rivals are sensing it's time to attack. A virtual who's who of media companies have come together to try and topple the once mighty YouTube. Fox, NBC/Universal, Yahoo!, AOL, Microsoft and MySpace will combine a la Voltron to create an uber-video service that will not only offer users the ability to upload clips but also to watch free (and legal) content from these companies. That means free episodes of "24," "The Simpsons" and "Heroes." It also means films (and clips from films) from Fox and Universal and their respective mini-studios (Searchlight, Focus, Rogue, etc.). As if this MechaGodzilla weren't powerful enough, they're in talks with Sony/Columbia and Warner Bros. to provide film and TV content as well. Hot damn! Considering YouTube is starting to pretty much suck now anyway this could be the death knell sounding for GooTube. I'd certainly appreciate one singular place where I could watch all that content and not have to worry about whether it's gonna be taken down in months. Interesting? Definitely. Now just wait until JoBlo launches JoBlooTube. It'll blow your frikkin' mind.

Fuck those Viacom crybabies!

There were many Viacom clips (some were formerly by Viacom since Showtime is with CBS now) that I enjoyed viewing like some old MTV commercials/videos (back when the channel was good) that were uploaded by a couple friends of mine there.

Viacom has sucked for the past decade anyways just for the decline of eMpTyV alone.

They already put the shows up for free. This way everything will be in one place. The real kicker here is that AOL has been licensing and reselling episodes of shows like 24 for 1.99 like iTunes and now they're going to jump in to bed with a fox who's been giving it away for free.

I'll be holding you to that promise of a JoBlooTube, Mike Sampson. An Internet video service to end all Internet video services.

But anyway, the only way I think they really could improve greatly on the YouTube formula, is if they did offer up a free TV episode service. YouTube already has most everything else.

No matter what they make

It will never top YouTube. It now has a cult following, and it's growing at unbelievable speeds.

BTW, they'll never put up free episodes of shows without some kind of commercial interruptions, and commercial interruptions on internet videos are the shittiest things ever conceived. If they go in that direction they'll be lucky to top any semi-popular video site out there.
