blinkx Launches TV Search Service
blinkx launched a TV search service today, blinkx Remote, which has indexed 11,000 episodes of roughly 1,000 TV shows including Gossip Girl, South Park and Arrested Development.
The service purportedly filters out video spam, illegal clips (hence the limited inventory) and videos that have been erroneously or falsely tagged.
While TV networks are quickly learning to love the web—Hulu, for example, has enjoyed spectacular growth in recent months—video search has been problematic for video sites because it’s often not text driven. blinkx Remote lets viewers search for shows by season, episode, title, network or genre.
