VEOH.com: The New You Tube, the New ABC, or the New Google?

||Review of veoh.com
As in the competitive marketplace there are businesses that try to emulate other successful businesses. In the online world, there are numerous sites that try to emulate other successful sites. They say that getting to be the best is nothing compared to staying on top once you get there. Is Facebook the next MySpace? Is ASK the next Google? Well who knows, but one thing is for sure, not many sites hit the big time and experience great success such as Facebook or You Tube. Even more rare are sites that have the potential to experience the success of both. Enter veoh.com.
Veoh is a diverse, virtual community of indie publishers coming together with their new audiences. According to their site, veoh.com is also the name for a suite of applications for collecting, publishing, and watching a vast selection of HD-quality video programming. I would bet that in upcoming months when you think of Internet Television you'll think of VEOH.
What's the Buzz About VEOH?
Veoh.com is an advanced video hosting and sharing site with over 70,000 content publishers – that's not the cool part, the cool part is that the content publishers are from Paramount Pictures, Lions Gate, PBS, National Lampoon, Road and Track and Us Magazine to thousands of independent filmmakers and content producers. It's a who's who of publishers. If that's not enough, media investors include Spark Capital, Michael Eisner's Tornante Company, Time Warner Inc. and Shelter Capital Partners. Impressed yet?
