May 26, 2008
ABC.com is souping up its full-episode broadband player with new features this Autumn
Among the new features for the broadcaster’s online destination are full-screen viewing, high definition, content recommendation technology, closed captioning and the ability to send video links that can be embedded on blogs and social networks.
ABC.com was the first full-episode player online when it launched in 2006, and as of April this year, it is the most dominant one: Its 8.9 million unique users was tops for the month among broadcasters, according to Nielsen Online. ABC.com also leads in minutes spent per user.
