British Open Boosts Web Traffic

5:20 PM -- Today on Contentinople:

  • Streams of this year's British Open jumped by 80 percent, as golf fans rushed the Turner Sports site last week, setting new records for daily unique visitors and page views.

  • Brightcove is reversing the 15 percent headcount cut it made in December by hiring 30 new employees.

  • Online video platform provider Ooyala has poached talent from Move Networks, Akamai Technologies, and The FeedRoom.

  • Netflix's service on Microsoft Xbox consoles is getting a new user interface, more interactive features, and "enhanced streaming" -- but not Microsoft Silverlight's Smooth Streaming.
And in today's News Bits, Tim Armstrong discusses his first 100 days as CEO of AOL.
