Online video aggregator and search firm MeFeedia has increased the amount of broadcast video content that it has access to, adding videos from CBS, it announced in a blog post this morning. With CBS now on board, MeFeedia has content from all four major broadcast networks, as it also has access to ABC content, as well as videos from Fox and NBC as part of a deal with Hulu.
MeFeedia wouldn’t comment on the terms of the deal, but it appears that promotional clips from the broadcaster and its sites are embeddable and stream through MeFeedia, while full-length episodes — like this episode of Survivor — link back to CBS’s own TV.com. This differs somewhat from Hulu’s approach, where full-length episodes are embedded and playable on the MeFeedia page.
MeFeedia aggregates and has indexed more than 170,000 video feeds from more than 30,000 sources, and as a result gets about 4 million to 5 million uniques a month. In addition to the broadcast content that MeFeedia has amassed, it also has relationships with independent web video producers and distributors such as Blip.tv, Howcast, Next New Networks, Revision3 and Vimeo.
With all that content, MeFeedia hopes to be a one-stop shop for online video content, providing a place where its users can search for new videos. That way, fans of Fox’s Family Guy that also enjoy CBS’s How I Met Your Mother can view content from both broadcast networks in a single place. They can also set up feeds for their favorite shows, enabling them to use MeFeedia like a personalized online video DVR.
