Site Launches Video Anywhere Widgets

Published July 21, 2008

SEATTLE, WA (BRAIN)—BroadbandSports.com has announced the viral distribution of 100 percent of its mountain biking video content by making its library available through easy and portable Video Anywhere widgets.

Mountain bikers are now able to embed the video widgets and post them on their own blogs, social networking profiles, Web sites, wikis and personal start pages. Members can build their own widgets based on any tag, keyword or even on another member and can create their own personalized channel widget to play their favorite clips. These widgets will instantly play new videos as they are posted on BroadbandSports.com.

“We were quite surprised to find that none of the other action sports video sites were offering content to be delivered in this way,” said Richard Palmer, vice president product strategy & development for BroadbandSports.com.

Broadbandsports.com offers Mountain Biking enthusiasts widgets that contain drops, downhill, tricks and crash content, to name a few. These widgets can be remixed to any keyword, tag or user profile.

"We want to create an exciting shared experience for our members and allow them to interact with our content everywhere they hangout, not just on our own websites broadbandsports.com and dirtworld.com," Palmer said.
