Comcast launching user video site

Called Ziddio, the site encourages people to submit video in a variety of themes and categories for prizes. And the best video will air on a new Comcast video-on-demand channel of the same name or on partner channels, such as The Style Network. Although the site has yet to launch (although the press release makes it sound like it’s already up), the idea of connecting focused user video with television programming is a promising one. In fact, Ziddio seems very similar in approach to NBC’s new user video site, ItsYourShowTV.com. Also, Comcast has been in talks with YouTube and Revver about repurposing their user video on VOD.
