Extreme sports in streaming HD
Action sports lifestyle network Fuel TV has added a new hi-def streaming video player, developed by Move Networks, to its website. The new ad-supported player gives fans another option for watching their choice of content. It debuted with HD versions of the entire second season of The Great Wide Open, but other shows including full episodes of The Standard Snowboard Show, Firsthand, FUEL TV presents Camp Woodward, Stupidface, New Pollution and Thrillbillies will be added before the end of the year. Fuel TV will continue to offer shows for free viewing on Hulu.com and through paid download on iTunes.
John Edwards, CEO of Move Networks, said the HD streaming player fast-forward and rewind with no buffering or stalling. While that’s a little hard to belive will work in the real world of my deplorable broadband connection, the player also enables viewers to share full episodes or clips. The HD streaming player by Move Networks is already being used by Fox.com, FXNeworks.com, ABC.com, and ESPN360.com.
