Google Looking More Portal-Like


Google has struck its first deal to promote TV programming through video content on its site. The search company is working with UPN to make the premiere episode of Chris Rock's "Everybody Hates Chris" available on Google Video.

As Gary Price notes on the SEW blog, Yahoo! previously "aired" the Kirstie Alley Showtime program "Fat Actress" and America Online streamed the WB pilot "Jack and Bobby".

Says UPN president Dawn Ostroff, in the press release:

"UPN's young adult viewers are avid online users, and streaming the premiere episode of EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS on Google Video is the perfect opportunity to reach this audience in a new and creative way," said Ostroff. "Everyone at UPN is very excited about this innovative relationship with Google, which offers viewers who may have missed the premiere the chance to watch it and hopefully motivate them to watch the second episode on UPN."
