Google is joining AOL and Yahoo in making new television programming available via their video search service. Today, UPN and Google have announced that Google Video now offers access (free) to the premiere episode of Everybody Hates Chris which aired last week on the network and is "inspired" by comedian Chris Rock's life as a kid. You can watch the complete program here. More in this article from Broadcasting and Cable.
Last week we blogged about Yahoo News offering web-based video news reports from Kevin Sites in Iraq. In February, Yahoo streamed the premiere episode of "Fat Actress" starring Kirstie Alley. For more about Yahoo's plans to create original video content, see this SEW Blog post from yesterday.
Last year, AOL streamed the WB tv pilot, Jack and Bobby. This past summer, AOL offered live streams of the Live8 concerts.
Postscript: The complete "Everbody Hates Chris" program is only viewable to U.S. users of Google Video for the next four days
