Streamload supplies digital media services to Discovery Communications

March 16, 2006

Discovery Communications has selected online digital media services provider Streamload to host its first online viewer video submission project.

Streamload's viewer submission system, which allows viewers to get more involved in their favorite programs, is being used to support the new Travel Channel series "5 TAKES." "5 TAKES" equips five young travelers with video cameras to document their travel experiences while interacting with viewers throughout their journey via the network's Web site. "5 TAKES" provides a unique platform for amateur travel journalists to share experiences and travel tips via the Web.
