Tipping Point

Reuters is reporting that AOL will launch Internet Television in Spring of 2006. In2TV will introduce 100 TimeWarner shows including Welcome Back Kotter, Growing Pains and Kung Fu…

Saul Hansel at the NY Times also reports that In2TV will use peer-to-peer to distribute media in an enhanced version.

I have not received confirmation, but I understand that In2TV will be running Kontiki platform. The founders are former Netscape/AOL employees that got together to launch Kontiki in 2001. Public television is using Kontiki’s grid to make their content available online as well via the Online Media Network.

In other related news, Hasbro announced today that they will provide Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network $2.99 downloads on their new portable media player (VuGo) from their Tiger Electronics division.
