NBC Universal and News Corp. added CNet Networks to the list of distribution affiliates participating in their unnamed digital video network.
CNet, which includes Web properties such as TV.com, CNet.com and Gamespot, will syndicate clips to the service on a non-exclusive basis.
In addition, CNet will distribute the joint venture’s library, adding its reach to the network, which includes AOL, MSN, MySpace, Yahoo and Comcast.
CNet will be the first to offer Internet-only content to the thousands of hours of TV, clips and movies from NBC U and News Corp. that will be distributed by the service.
CNet is the second non-equity partner in the venture, meaning it will provide video on a non-exclusive basis. Cable giant Comcast joined under similar terms and agreed to provide content from its owned cable networks E!, Style, G4, Versus and Golf Channel.
The NBC U and News Corp. venture will include a consumer site and a distribution network when it launches in late summer.
