AOL + MTV = ???

Phil Harvey

11:40 AM -- Will video on demand save AOL's dwindling membership?

From today's PR pile, a deal that gives AOLers one tiny reason to hang on to their membership (if they have a broadband-ready PC and watch lots of TV programs while sitting at their desks):

AOL today announced that its video search engine will now feature RSS feeds from MTV Networks' programming services. Video content from the company's highly popular CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV, MTV2, mtvU, The N, Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, Nick Jr., Nicktoons, Noggin, Spike, TV Land and VH1 Web sites are now accessible through AOL's best-in-class video search engine available through the AOL.com portal's Video On Demand tab (http://www.aol.com/video), AOL Search (http://www.aolsearch.com) and on the AOL service. In addition, Singingfish (http://www.singingfish.com), one of the Web's premier video and audio search engines, and its network of search properties will also feature content from MTV Networks.

re: AOL + MTV = ???
Kinda like an old broken down Hag hooking up with a young stud to try and stay relevant. Obviously a desperate cry for help.

AOL, like Blockbuster, is a dinosaurs that will die because it cannot innovate fast enough.

Cisco = Cockroach, we don't have to like it but chances are it will last.

Evolution, Ain't it a btich.
