Yahoo Video Site – Yahoo Current TV Network – to Compete with Google YouTube Sites

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Yahoo has launched their own Yahoo video site – known as a the Yahoo Current Network – in conjunction with the Current TV network.

Being called by some just “Yahoo TV”, and similar to Google Video, and the wildly popular YouTube (recently aquired by Google) in that users can upload their own content, the Yahoo Current network is being marketed in a decidely more slick and commercial manner.


According to Yahoo:

“The Yahoo! Current Network debuts with four channels on Yahoo! Video that allow users to view and upload videos, participate in rich communities and share their passions. Channels include:

— Yahoo! Current Buzz: A daily feature that reflects what the Yahoo! community is searching for, with segments that showcase the best of what’s buzzing around the world and on the Web. Current Buzz is executive produced by Madeleine Smithberg, the Emmy and Peabody-winning co-creator and former executive producer of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
