Al Gore’s Current TV is going into partnership with Yahoo, Inc. to create four new broadband channels. Like the Current TV network, the new broadband channels will focus on disseminating video created by young viewers.
“We expect this will be the premier video online experience,” Gore told The Associated Press.
The four channels are separate and distinct from Current’s TV network, Gore said.
“The distribution reach and community of online viewers that Yahoo serves gives an unparalleled opportunity to connect the online video experience, including video-related content, with a mass audience,” Gore said.
The best user-created videos on the Yahoo! Current Network will be featured on Current TV each Monday afternoon.
