NEW YORK MySpace has created a new channel to showcase its growing collection of long-form, professionally produced video content.
The new MySpace PrimeTime channel houses a wide variety of full-length episodes of current and past TV hits from Hulu, the joint Web video venture launched this year by NBC Universal and News Corp.
Included are episodes of current series such as The Office and Family Guy, as well as classics like The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The A-Team.
In addition, MySpace is using PrimeTime to drive more viewers to its originals, including the new Blogging, twenty-something-themed Quarterlife, which is scheduled to end up on NBC, as well as the recently launched Roommates.
Users can also create forums within the channel to discuss and debate their favorite shows.
