SeeSaw & NBC Universal Partner Over Content

UK-based video on demand aggregator, SeeSaw, has announced that it has signed an agreement with NBC Universal, a partnership that will allow it to deliver a wider variety of programmes.

NBC Universal shows includes the likes of House, The Office and Battlestar Galactica and would be available on demand via SeeSaw for as little as 99p per episode up to £17.99 for a whole series, which in many case would be higher than the price of getting the series on DVD instead.

As for most traditional video on content websites, users would have up to 90 days to watch a whole series and up to 48 hours to watch a single episode.

SeeSaw, which is owned by Arqiva, the company which purchased the IP of the failed BBC-backed project Kangaroo, also have similar partnerships with BBC Worldwide, Channel 4, Five, Disney and MTV Networks.

The VoD service already offers 3,500 hours of free programming with an additional 1,500 available as premium, paid for content. SeeSaw claims to have clocked more than 2 million unique visitors since the site launched five months ago.
