Redlasso back in business with Fox
As reported on Webnewser, Redlasso will be back in business soon with Fox O&O affiliates. Some of the affiliates include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington, D.C. and Houston. Beginning in April 2009, local news content will be added to Redlasso for use by bloggers, websites, forums, etc to customize and share.
Fox Television Stations (FTS) and Redlasso have entered into an agreement that gives the online broadcast media center the rights to syndicate content from the group’s local television news programs.
Starting in April 2009, content from the Fox owned-and-operated stations will be made available to bloggers and news oriented Web sites directly on www.redlasso.com. Registered users will be able to search content and create their own customized clips to use and embed within their blogs or Web-based articles using the Redlasso online editing tools.
Previously, FOX and NBC moved forward with a law suit to shut down Redlasso.
