blinkx Remote service
July 31, 2008
Leveraging blinkx's patented video search technology, blinkx Remote filters out video spam, illegal clips, and inappropriate material that has been falsely tagged and will find only full length, legally available, episodes of TV programmes.
blinkx does not have partnership deals with broadcasters to operate the service, but uses publicly available programme data in the same way Google News indexes information from news sites. The service indexes around 1,000 UK shows and between 300 and 400 from the US.
