Vuze and Broadbandtv team up Broadbandtv, a company which specializes in distribution of video content via the Internet has announced that it had started an alliance with Vuze, the rapidly growing HD IPTV platform. The new alliance will offer Broadbandtv's "premium content" to Vuze on "an advertising supported basis."
Vuze, which currently has 18 million users, will offer Broadbandtv's library of premium TV and movie programming which easily exceeds 15,000 titles.

"Vuze has an amazing roster of premium content partners,"
said Gilles BianRosa, CEO of Vuze, Inc. "Today's partnership with Broadbandtv will expand Vuze's expansive library of premium entertainment content to our growing audience of users. Beyond delivering an excellent library of titles, Broadbandtv is at the forefront of content discoverability, which is important because Vuze delivers more than one million hours of high-quality video per month."

"We are thrilled to add Vuze to the Broadbandtv network, a truly first rate IPTV platform that is exhibiting staggering organic growth,"
said Shahrzad Rafati, CEO of Broadbandtv. "We are focused on providing our content partners with unparalleled distribution opportunities with the top InternetTV properties on the net and working with a market leader like Vuze is a big part of that strategy."

The content will be free online for users and both companies will share advertising revenue generated from the paid sponsorship of the new content.

I'm surprised it has taken this long for the secret to leak out.. I have been using it (and sopcast) for quite a while now.

A very good source of HD content for streaming to your currently pretty pointless HD tv

Forget your disk format war.. this is the future.

I linked this to the qtrax non starter.. people should be aware that it's not the business model which makes the most noise that is most successful.. If you haven't heard of this system before check it out, and forget those qtrax drm people.
