MTR to add ‘Net content to its library

Will partner with RealNetworks

The Museum of Television and Radio unveiled plans Tuesday to add original Web-based programming to its media collections.

MTR has partnered with RealNetworks to provide the necessary streaming media technology, but hasn’t yet hammered out what types of ‘Net content it will enshrine within its walls.

“It will be based on the same criteria we use already,” said MTR spokeswoman Loretta Ramos. “Artistic excellence, social impact and historical significance.”

RealNetworks topper Rob Glaser added, “We are thrilled that the Museum of Television and Radio is taking the lead in recording the pivotal and unique role of the Internet as a mass medium, alongside radio, television and cable.”

So is a renamed Museum of Television, Radio and the Internet in the works?

“It’s actually come up and has been mulled over,” admitted Ramos. “But nothing in the near future.”

MTR will roll out its online additions to its library within the next several months.
