Last night I went to the NewTeeVee event and hung out with some interesting people in the web video space. We met up at Burp Castle in East Village thanks to Jackson West’s recommendation (great spot btw). We talked to Kerry Vance from Joost who told me about their new partnership with College Humor TV. You can now get their comedy shows in Joost along with the rest of Joost’s high quality content. College Humor TV should get it’s own show on a major network like Comedy Central.
“We are excited to be partnering with Joost to launch the CollegeHumor channel because it gives us an opportunity to introduce our original videos to a new, savvy audience,” said Ricky Van Veen, Co-Founder and Editor-In-Chief of CollegeHumor. “Joost’s high quality, full screen platform is one of the few places where our high definition widescreen originals can look as good as they do on CollegeHumor.com.”
I’m not sure that Joost is going to be the big content network that rises up as number one. I do believe there will be one network that takes hold of this space to have the best network of premium content. I could be Joost or someone else. Only time will tell.
