Internet TV for the Long Tail

At this week's MipTV show in Cannes (its like Burning Man for video producers), Internet TV companies like Joost, Babelgum (seen in this screenshot)and others were there to signal a sea change in the way we will all watch "TV" and even full-length feature films in the very near future thanks to AMAZING new P2P technology that streams DVD quality content to computer screens. Joost has been striking deals with the majors while Babelgum (full disclosure alert: one of my clients) has been positioning itself as Internet TV for The Long Tail due to its focus on acquiring more niche content and short films. Good news for filmmakers like Spike Lee who licensed his exclusive flick, Jesus Children of America to be shown exclusively on Babelgum. Look for both Joost and Babelgum to go into open beta in the VERY near future!
