MusicPlusTV.com – Broadcast TV for Web Era

MusicPlusTV.com launched a revamped
website today. As well as a new look, it has doubled the resolution of its
flagship 24/7 television broadcast stream, added social networking capabilities,
and more. MusicPlusTV.com is an interesting blend of online video/music and a traditional TV

  • Unlimited Bandwidth: Embedding and linking to content
  • Higher Quality Live Stream: 24/7 live broadcast resolution doubled
  • M+ Exclusive Video Archive: Searchable by keyword and tags, filtered by
    genre, category, and file-type.

MusicPlusTV.com seems to be differentiating itself from the likes of MySpace
and YouTube with its broadcast TV option. Some of its early beta registrants
have been prominently featured on MusicPlusTV.com’s live shows, which helps
drive traffic to their profiles. The site is still quite difficult to
immediately grok, but its central purpose seems to be as a social network for
young music/video fans – with content creation being an important part of the

Of course, MusicPlusTV.com is hardly alone in the field of Web TV – check out Josh
Catone’s recent R/WW review
