IPTV has been on the rise ever since video podcasts (or vodcasts) became popular. The founders of Kazaa and Skype are now moving into the space with their new P2P software, dubbed The Venice Project. Earlier today, they sent out notifications to those that registered (myself included) that it is now time to move into private beta.
Welcome to The Venice Project beta testing program. As you may know, we’re working on a project that we think will completely revolutionise television. Combining the best features of TV with the powerful social features of the internet, The Venice Project will give TV viewers, advertisers and content owners more choice, control and creativity than ever before.
We’d like your help in realising this vision. Today, we’re inviting you to take a sneak preview of our work and take part in The Venice Project’s first beta testing phase. This is a private, invitation-only beta test and the software is still in the early stages, but we would greatly value your opinions. We hope you’ll participate actively by giving us your feedback on everything from bugs to performance issues and suggestions for new features.
