The CBS Television Stations Digital Media Group is working with multimedia content search engine blinkx to make thousands of hours of local content fully searchable online at www.blinkx.tv.
Users of blinkx.tv will now be able to find local news, weather, entertainment and traffic updates, as well as catch up on neighborhood current affairs, by searching locally produced video content available on the CBS Television Stations' Web sites. The local CBS stations will add several thousand hours of local news video to blinkx's growing list of content partners. Search queries will link users directly into relevant video segments located on a station's Web site. CBS Television Stations' "Always On" digital media initiative is a nationwide project focused on expanding the availability of the stations’ local, relevant text, graphic and video content to consumers via new media, 24 hours a day.
