Brightcove, an online video infrastructure provider, says it has signed a deal with Fox Entertainment Group (FEG) which will be used for various different Fox properties to go online, and build ad-supported Internet video channels. includes the Fox Studio, Fox Broadcast Network, and Fox’s 9+ cable channels. They have already recently launched channels around shows on FX, Fox, and SPEED TV (sports channel).
Brightcove, which has raised huge amounts of money is slowly becoming an infrastructure provider of choice for large content providers, mostly because the company has developed tools that integrate with their existing production tools.
It also raises the question: should Jeremy Allaire and his crew even bother going after the consumer/independent video creator market? Why not focus entirely on the large media companies?
