MyNBC? NBC To Launch Own Version Of MySpace


Today’s big announcement to come out of the Peacock net’s Television Crtics Association tour — newly-installed NBC Entertainment prez Ben Silverstein‘s first — is the launch of MyNBC, NBC’s foray into new media buzzworlds of user-generated content, social networking and … well, let’s see if you can read the following paragraph without trailing off:

Beginning in September, users will find social networking tools on the site. These new features, which will roll-out over the next few months, will enable users to create modular, customizable profiles rich with user-generated content; participate in an online community where fans can interact with NBC personalities and each other; gain access to exclusive content and live interactive events; create blogs, photo galleries, and video galleries; join groups to discuss their favorite shows; grab widgets for all of their social networking profiles and blogs and keep track of all the games they play and the contests they’ve entered. MyNBC gives users one convenient place to experience their favorite entertainment.

The big part for us, though: NBC plans to stream Conan:

This summer, will debut a first for broadcast network late-night entertainment. Fans of Conan O’Brien will be able to stream episodes of “Late Night” on starting with the episode airing on August 27th. Daily episodes will become available at 5am PT the next day.
