blinkx is announcing today that they will power the video search for PodShow. blinkx claims to be "the world’s largest video search engine" and PodShow claims the, "world’s #1 broadband entertainment network and leading distributor of independently-produced episodic content." I thought Blip was the leader on episodic content?
"Searching for entertainment should be as entertaining as the entertainment itself," PodShow CEO Ron Bloom said. "By combining PodShow’s deep trove of episodic content with blinkx’s video search engine, we will enable PodShow’s audience to discover and share the best in new media from PodShow and across the net."
"Podshow has always been a visionary in rich media on the Web," said Suranga Chandratillake, founder and CEO, blinkx. "We’re very proud to be powering search for this pioneering social media community to make millions of hours of content easily searchable for their users."
Looks like the deal is a rev share model and the program will be called "Searchertainment".
