AOL HD Delivers Content via Internet-Connected TV Platforms

Users of Internet-connected video platforms including Boxee, Roku, Yahoo! Connected TV, and Divx can now access HD-quality video from AOL with its launch of the AOL HD app, announced Wednesday.

AOL HD launched with three channels that will feature content from AOL Huffington Post Media Group properties: entertainment, technology, and home. Content from Moviefone, Engadget, and HuffPost Entertainment will be joined by fare such as cooking videos from celebrity chefs including Curtis Stone and Gail Simmons, and audio content from AOL Music’s full CD Listening Party, which offers pre-release previews of new CDs.

The app streams the content directly to users’ TV sets, and it will be available via the app libraries of the respective platforms, with more platforms to be added shortly.

AOL HD general manager Rob DelaCruz said:

There has been explosive growth in the number of users who watch and interact with Internet content on their televisions. We’re uniquely positioned to serve this audience, delivering premium original content in a rich high-definition experience and engaging users across all of their screens.
