tv nets fight back….youtube dead?

well it had to happen. nbc and fox have teamed up to create a new video sites that will carry all their content for free. i just want to point out a few things:

1. users will be able to get all these shows in one place

2. advertisers will be able to buy both tv and online through one source

3. the power of the nets to market this to users

i am not saying youtube, joost, and other are done but as a user on techcrunch says…”its not a divorce of ugc and professional content but it is a separation”. true, true.

i know this is not the last we will hear from google and co on the topic but if viacom took the gloves off with the 1b dollar lawsuit then nbc and fox threw the first bare knuckle punch.

read full techcrunch story here. read the comments as well very interesting.
