Google Video Store



It looks as though Google will be selling video content for as little as $1.99 each. At CES today they’ve announced deals with CBS for some current running shows (CSI for instance). Also, a large number of older CBS shows including a few entries in the Star Trek franchise, I Love Lucy, The Brady Bunch, etc… will be made available. There’s a deal with the NBA for games (24 hour delay.) Looks like some music videos, and a good deal of other content.


I hope there will be a better way to browse video.google.com I’ve always felt like the interface is a little awkward…. I know, it’s simple, but I’d like an ability to browse… Finding specific things seems tricky. Knowing to that you can search like this…. Title:hurricane … helps, but I still find it an odd way to find videos. I’d like to see a way to browse buy author (or submitter) and then perhaps entries in a series (sort chronologically? or by most popular/highest rated/etc…)

I suspect we may see some evolution of the video search as this progresses.
