Consumers can use the new service, launched online at, to watch shows or events streamed by the Google-owned operation's partners, who will be able to access the YouTube Live streaming platform to begin broadcasting content.

The new Live platform would make live-streaming a standard practice. The company said that the new service is intended to be a platform for its partners to show live content to users.

Hulu Set for $500M in Revenue, 1M Hulu-Plus Subscribers

Hulu is doing well if you ask Jason Kilar, the CEO, who reported the Q1 stats for the online video service in a blog post on Monday. From the sounds of the post everything is unicorns and cotton candy over there in the rose-colored world of Huludise. Lots of good stats to show how healthy the company is and illustrate the jump up from the $263M they did last year which could spell I…P…O… Kilar stated the company is, "on pace to approach half a billion dollars in revenue in 2011." He also cited a 90% revenue growth in Q1 year-over-year. That's some pretty stiff growth. Considering how the company has been bouncing around on the comScore Top Ten video properties lists it's good to see they're on the up and up in the revenue department. They grew some 50% in regards to the number of advertisers they served. A stat I am frankly not all that impressed with. They do load up on ads already so I don't want them to think that's the continued way to go. No ads for Hulu Plus is going to be key to their continued success I think because they will continue to push ads on the subscribers to the point where people stop paying, and why wouldn't they when they can possibly get a lot of that Plus content that has ads for free elsewhere.

Toshiba promises Glasses free 3D TV within 12 months

Toshiba just unveiled a new line of 3D panel televisions that will – for the first time – be available outside of Japan. And here's the real kicker: They're promising that at least one of these models will be completely glasses-free. You hear that, 3D fans? Nothing weighing down your face. Just good ol', unencumbered TV watching plus an extra dimension. Details at this point are scant, but Toshiba didn't shy from talking up their other projects, notably a new line of Regza VL passive 3D TVs. Each one is said to come standard with four ReaID 3D glasses, and will be available in 42- and 47-inch sizes. No word on pricing yet. In Japan, 12- and 20-inch glasses-free 3D TVs are already available. The catch is they can only be watched from nine very specific angles, which--let's face it--is far from ideal, especially at such tiny sizes. But if Toshiba lives up to its promise and delivers a full-sized 3D TV the entire family can enjoy sans shades (they're saying April 2012, so cross your fingers), it may change the game enough to give 3D a fighting chance.

Dish Network acquiring Blockbuster for $228M

Dish Network Corp. said Wednesday that it won the auction for Blockbuster Inc. with a bid valued at $228 million in cash. As of Tuesday, the satellite TV company, billionaire investor Carl Icahn and a group of debt holders were the three remaining bidders for the Dallas movie-rental chain, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September. Dish's bid was for $320 million, but the value decreases to $228 million after adjusting for available cash and inventory. "Blockbuster will complement our existing video offerings while presenting cross-marketing and service extension opportunities for Dish Network," said Tom Cullen, executive vice president of sales, marketing and programming for Dish Network, in a statement. Blockbuster is already a shadow of its former self. When the chain filed for bankruptcy protection, it was down to 3,000 stores, less than a third of the peak of 9,100 in 2004. There are about 2,400 currently open with plans to close about 700 more by mid-April. Blockbuster used to dominate the U.S. movie rental business. But it lost money for years as that business declined because customers shifted to Netflix Inc., video on demand and DVD rental kiosks. Dish, based in Englewood, Colo., expects to close the deal during the second quarter. The transaction needs bankruptcy court approval.
