YouTube viewers are getting their dose of March Madness this year in the form of short clips of game highlights as the action unfolds and video recaps of all 67 games, which will be made available as part of a new NCAA March Madness channel. The channel will also feature live streams from press conferences, as well as game previews and news and analysis clips. The one thing missing: Live streams of all the games. For that, users will still have to rely on streaming from CBS and Turner, some of which will once again only be available to pay TV subscribers.
Twitter (S TWTR) has acquired San Francisco-based video sharing startup SnappyTV, both companies announced Thursday without spilling any beans about the financials of the deal. You may have never heard of SnappyTV, but chances are, you’ve seen some of its work on Twitter before: SnappyTV has helped Turner to share March Madness clips in near-realtime, and also powered the video cards of numerous other TV networks. With the acquisition, Twitter obviously wants to bolster its own media chops, but the company promised Thursday that SnappyTV customers will continue to be able to share media on Facebook (S FB) and elsewhere as well.
