from a Veoh press release
SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 15, 2006–Veoh Networks, Inc., the first Internet Television Peercasting Network, today announced that video junkies have flocked to Veoh and downloaded more than 240,000 videos to enjoy on their PC or Mac, and increasingly on their portable media player and connected TV. That number is increasing exponentially each week.
The company also reported that its video catalog and registered user base rose in January by 50 percent over December 2005. Word of mouth has resulted in Veoh users rising to access the more than 30,000 videos now available on the system. Much of the content on the Veoh Network are video series that can be automatically downloaded to a portable device once the viewer subscribes to the series, be it a daily video blog or weekly burlesque game show.
"Producers and viewers alike are finding value at Veoh, and they are telling their friends", said Dmitry Shapiro, Veoh CEO. "Early results clearly show that a need exists for a new way to deliver and view TV, where anyone can broadcast and reach the entire universe. As people continue to yearn for finding more than what is on their TV set at home, they will continue to search for what’s of interest to them."
Veoh also found that the top search terms among its viewers are "iPod" and "PSP," further demonstrating the demand for content to fill the popular portable video players recently released by Apple and Sony. And while people still enjoy current TV shows on the go, they are also subscribing to classic cartoons, like early public domain Popeye and Superman episodes, skateboarding videos and popular video blogs.
