Brightcove, an internet TV provider, has announced that CBS News will use the Brightcove service to syndicate ad-supported video from CBS News across the internet. The partnership will expand non-linear distribution of CBS News content, available on AOL News, Comcast, and YouTube, to thousands of small and medium-sized websites and blogs. In partnering with CBS News, Brightcove adds broadcast network news content to its portfolio of partners in the Brightcove Syndication Marketplace and will also feature CBS News on Brightcove.com. Through the Brightcove managed syndication service, approved website publishers will have the opportunity to embed a CBS News video player directly onto their sites. The CBS News video player will include the latest video from the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, The Early Show, and other CBS News programs, as well as video produced by CBS News exclusively for the web. Websites interested in carrying CBS News on their sites will be able to go to cbsnews.com or to the Brightcove Syndication Marketplace to apply to become an affiliate.
