In2TV is a joint-service offered by AOL and Warner Bros. that enables people in the USA only[1] to download television shows over the internet, free of charge. For other uses, see AOL (disambiguation). ... “WB” redirects here. ...



The service was launched in March 2006. The downloadable shows are complete and uncut, but include about 2 minutes of ads per episode. In2TV episodes can be viewed in fullscreen as well as in the new AOL Hi-Q video format. The service was integrated with AOL Video in December of 2006. Hi-Q has several meanings: Hi-Q is a game that involves jumping pegs over one another in a cruciform grid. ...



The main appeal of the service is that it makes available numerous old shows which are rarely, if ever, aired on broadcast television. The main downsides of the service are that the selection of shows is largely limited to those owned by Warner Bros. Another downside is that the bandwidth is limited. A show goes to commercial break periodically, however, it is not always able to return. Many complaints to AOL Video and In2TV are that, after spending time watching a program, they were unable to finish the program, due to the commercial interruption.

PC World's Techlog - In2TV: A New Twist on Old TV (1377 words)
In2TV bills itself as "the first broadband TV network," and the claim is fair enough.
But my time with In2TV whetted my appetite for the time--which I think we'll see within the next five years or so--when complete runs of hundreds or thousands of TV shows will be available via video-on-demand services.
A descendant of In2TV with hundreds of thousands of episodes of thousands of series might still not be a life-changer--but it would be undeniably cool.
