Blinkx Launches Another Online TV Service With Some Cool Features

After Joost, Babelgum, iPlayer, Livestation, Vuze et al comes yet another online TV platform. Web video search index Blinkx is branching farther out in to distribution by launching its own version - hybrid P2P player Blinkx Broadband TV (BBTV). BBTV has a couple cool features. First, you can click a button to get deeper information on something on-screen. Second, you can read and search a show’s transcript while it’s playing. Blinkx says BBTV (which, incidentally, also stands for BoingBoing TV) harnesses Blinkx’s core speech recognition video transcription technology to offer searchability and clickable subtitles that point to web pages in a manner tightly integrated with the 1.8Mb Windows-only TV app.
