Jeff's Guide to "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet"

Somewhere between the world of professionally "produced" TV shows and personal video blogs lies the world of what can be best described as "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet."

This summer the team at pulver.com set out on a mission to explore and discover the state of "TV and the Net" and when looking at this space, we arbitrary divided the world into five parts:

- "TV on the Net" - these are websites for TV shows that are, or have been, on TV/Cable and are now available for viewing on the Net;
- "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet" - these are new programs produced for the purpose of viewing on the broadband internet.
- "User Created Content sites" - these are the sites like Veoh and YouTube which offer community members the ability to upload video content to share with others;
- "Sites to View TV" - these are sites like ChannelKing and ChannelChooser where someone can watch commercial TV stations over the internet.
- "Misc" - for websites that didn't fit in any of the other boxes above.

While I'm certain that in the near future there will be thousands of sites that will meet the criteria for "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet", the list of 80+106 shows below is a sampling of some of the better sites that we discovered this summer. Quite a number of websites we discovered did not make the list because we felt the underlying content was not updated often enough. For the record, the sites listed below were all more or less current as of: August 28, 2006. I've noticed that these sites disappear as often as the just appear so some of the links below maybe gone by the time you have a chance to explore them.

At the moment, some of the "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet" sites are being done as a hobby for some and others are being run as a business. There is no doubt in my mind that the quality of the user experience is just going to improve with them and the success of some of these sites will just encourage others to join the fray of "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet." It is just a matter of time before more of these shows find their way from being "Internet Only" to becoming available for viewing on TiVo, Broadcast TV or Cable.

Watching this content I get the feeling that the motivation for some of these people is to get discovered and put on commercial TV and others are by people who use the internet as the medium for their message.

While the most popular platforms continue to be both Windows Media and Quicktime, Brightcove's market share in this category continues to be on the rise.

The list below is not meant to be the exclusive list of "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet." Rather, I look at this list as the seed of something much, much bigger. So please drop me a line and let me know about the "TV Shows Only Available on the Internet" that you watch, that you are aware of or that you are involved with.

By the way, I'm still looking for the 2006 versions of "Tool Time and "Wayne?s World."
