In2TV Free Vintage TV for Broadband

America Online and Warner Brothers Domestic Cable Distribution are launching a broadband network that will give a unique new lease on life to a slew of vintage TV series. The service will be supported by commercials. GM is the first sponsor during the trial period.

Dubbed In2TV, the network will serve up "Welcome Back Kotter," "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," "Pinky and the Brain" and "Growing Pains" among a host of other Warner-owned shows that viewers can watch in their entirety, for free and on-demand, beginning in January.

Each show is presented with interactive elements, games, competitions and additional content to take advantage of the medium's unique capabilities. They have 4,800 episodes from more than 100 old television series that they'll be distributing at the AOL portal. AOL will use the Kontiki Plug-in and Relay Network delivery mechanism to deliver the VOD service. AOL is promising DVD-like quality in full screen playback mode.
