Current TV Possibly Exiting Yahoo

Posted on December 2, 2006

CurrentCurrent TV, a cable channel founded by Al Gore, appears to be ending its content distribution deal with Yahoo Video. Current TV spokesman Alex Dolan said in a statement, "Current is exploring better opportunities to distribute our content." Yahoo has not commented on the rumor.

A Paid Content post refers to a cryptic notice on Current TV's site.
"We are no longer accepting uploads to the Yahoo! Current Network, but would encourage you to upload your videos to another pod family. If you landed here with the intention of uploading to Yahoo! Current Driver, your piece should find a home in Current Speed. Yahoo! Current Traveler submissions will fit in nicely with Current Travel, and Yahoo! Current Action pods should go to Current Edge."
It would be a big loss for Yahoo's video website. Current TV provides some of the best content available on Yahoo Video.
