The Veoh Player available from Network2 will be pre-configured to browse and play long-form, episodic content available from the Network2 Electronic Programming Guide. With the Veoh Player, Network2 viewers will be able to access high-quality video content for viewing offline at any time and on any screen.
The Veoh Player is new, downloadable, free software available for PCs and Macs that allows viewers to save, organize and watch video of any length or file size from a wide variety of sources. With the Veoh Player, viewers can download videos from Veoh.com, Network2.tv and also from RSS feeds, electronic program guides and Bit Torrent trackers. The Player also integrates with a Browser Plug-In from Veoh which alerts viewers to the presence of video content on any web page and allows them to pull it down and save it for viewing offline on any screen. The Player content can be viewed on a computer, iPod, SONY PSP, or even pushed to a big screen TV where the Player converts to a 10-foot interface with remote control.
