Google to offer free TV archive videos

Oct 26, 2005

Google said Wednesday it will be working to provide free viewing of interviews with Hollywood celebrities.

The Internet search engine said it has joined forces with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation to make the foundation's archive of interviews available for free online. The collection includes interviews with Alan Alda, Dick Wolf and Steven Bochco, among others.

"The Foundation's Archive of American Television is probably the most diverse, complete and fascinating resource of its kind. The stories are told through the eyes of the creative geniuses -- in front of and behind the cameras -- who shaped and continue to shape television into the most powerful medium in the world," Foundation Chairman Steve Mosko said in a news release. "Google has been fantastic. They learned of our need to make our interviews more accessible and stepped up to make it happen. This relationship is a perfect marriage of irreplaceable content and one of the most powerful delivery systems in the world," he added.
