SAN FRANCISCO – October 30, 2006 – YouTube is no longer the last word in online video. TasteTV celebrates the major internet television announcement today of industry leader Brightcove by highlighting the testimonial video it created for the Brightcove.com launch.

Says a TasteTV spokesperson, “Today our partner Brightcove relaunched their Brightcove.com site, using some of the over $20 million in funding they have to move forward with a major strategic announcement which revolutionizes television on the Internet, and is 100% in line with what the Indie Food Channel (TasteTV) forecasted would occur over for the last two years.”
TasteTV strongly believes that Brightcove is on the right path for Internet Television. When TasteTV launched in 2004, this was exactly the type of platform and service that it forecasted would develop, and the firm is therefore very happy to see it arrive right on time.
Says the TasteTV spokesperson, “Of course, we do like to joke that we also launched originally as the Indie Food Channel, but spent two years explaining to analysts and media watchers how we could ‘possibly be a channel if we didn’t have a station or cable number.’ I guess time has answered that question.”
