blinkx launches all-in-one UK online TV portal
New portal offers easy access to shows from main broadcasters
Video search engine blinkx is introducing a new service which combines content from UK broadcasters within one easy to use search and playback destination, blinkx Remote.
Shows being made legitimately available by the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Five are being made available through the service, along with shows from other broadcasters.
“The online video landscape has changed dramatically over the past year - what was once the domain of short-form, user-generated material, has become the realm of premium television,” said Suranga Chandratillake, founder and CEO of blinkx.
“It’s a tremendous source of news and entertainment for consumers, but the content is spread across myriad sites belonging to national broadcasters and media giants. blinkx Remote uses our award-winning video search technology to help consumers find their favorite TV shows quickly, easily and in one place.”
The service filters out video spam, illegal clips, and inappropriate material that has been falsely tagged. Audiences will find only full length, legally available, episodes of their favourite TV programmes through blinkx Remote, and will be able to sign up to receive alerts when a new show is posted through RSS or email.
blinkx Remote launches today.
