Current TV: Gore's Broadcasting/Internet Hybrid

"Al Gore yesterday unveiled plans to launch a UK version of his 'user generated' network, Current TV, with the help of BSkyB, the pay–TV giant of which Rupert Murdoch is chairman. ... Internet networking sites such as MySpace and video sharing services such as YouTube and Google Video have forced broadcasters to learn from them. ...

Mr Gore said the launch of a localised version of Current TV in the UK next spring was the first step in taking the network global. The schedule, made up of 'pods' of between five seconds and 15 minutes, averaging four minutes, is also dictated by viewers via the internet.

The dramatic growth in video blogging sites like YouTube has been cited as a key influencing factor in the development of Al Gore and James Murdoch's recent Internet/broadcasting hybrid called Current TV."
