AOL Launches Free Online TV

InsideGoogle reports:

"Via Gary Price's ResourceShelf, comes the news that AOL's In2TV has launched. I'm excited about this for one reason alone: Kotter.

In2TV lets you watch classic TV shows streaming. But before we get to the hows and why, here's the list of shows:

* 10 episodes of Alice
* 10 episodes of Babylon 5
* 10 episodes of the Beetlejuice cartoon
* 10 episodes of Chico and The Man
* 10 episodes of Dark Justice
* 10 episodes of Eight is Enough
* 10 episodes of F Troop
* 10 episodes of Falcon Crest
* 10 episodes of Freddy's Nightmares
* 10 episodes of Growing Pains
* 10 episodes of Hangin' With Mr. Cooper
* 10 episodes of Head of the Class
* 10 episodes of Kung Fu
* 10 episodes of La Femme Nikita
* 10 episodes of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, including none of my favorite episodes, and the disastrous wedding episode, 'Swear to God, This Time We're Not Kidding'. If you've never seen the episode that proves why a series I loved in season one deserved the horrible death, then you should, just to understand. All the other episodes, while not classics, are from season one, so they're pretty good.
* 10 episodes of Maverick
* 10 episodes of Perfect Strangers
* 10 episodes of Pinky and the Brain - Hoo baby! That's great news!
* 10 episodes of Scarecrow and Mrs. King
* 10 episodes of Sisters
* 10 episodes Spenser For Hire
* 10 episodes of Freakazoid
* 10 episodes of The Adventures Of Brisco County, Jr.
* 10 episodes of The FBI
* 10 episodes of The Fugitive, including the pilot
* 10 episodes of The New Adventures of Batman - that's the really old silly cartoon, not the Bruce Timm version
* 10 episodes of V
* 10 episodes of Histeria
* 10 episodes of Welcome Back, Kotter
* 10 episodes of Wonder Woman"

In an effort to get better control of my ATOM/RSS feed, as well as to remove some of my reliance on the blogspot domain, I have decided to set up a feed via Feedburner.

The new feed is available at:

It will automatically return Atom, RSS or viewable HTML depending upon how you try to retrieve from that URL.
