PluggedIn features free High-definition music videos from major labels Yet another new, innovative Internet music service has arrived. PluggedIn has launched with 10,000 free high-def music videos from studios such as Sony BMG and EMI. The service was launched by Overbrook Entertainment, which touts a partnership of music industry heavyweights James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz, as well as artist and award-winning actor Will Smith.
The site, now in beta, offers free music video streaming in HD at broadcast quality, which can be viewed full screen with a media player. PluggedIn also hosts over 1 million artist profiles. It has already gathered considerable attention in the industry, with Pat Magnarella (company founder whose clients included Green Day and the Goo Goo Dolls) calling the next generation of MTV.

"Until now, watching HD or even broadcast-quality music videos on the Web has been nearly impossible," Jeff Somers, CEO of PluggedIn, said in a news announcement. "Today we're announcing a major step forward in the way that fans can connect with the high-quality content and artists that matter most to them. We're focused on building a unique experience for fans -- a place where they can meet and interact with each other, and where they can enjoy, discover, and share premium quality video content."

Users can also buy digital downloads, CDs, merchandise and concert tickets using PluggedIn. Content from Internationally-known artists including Green Day, Radiohead, Coldplay, Gorillaz, Chemical Brothers, Norah Jones and more is available on the new service.

I take it back, it doesn't even support Opera.

Supports FireFox though... however 'Not licensed outside of the US'

What a load of fail.
