Google Teams Up With MTV

From a Google press release today:

Google ... and MTV Networks ... are collaborating to test an innovative video distribution model that will serve consumers, web publishers and advertisers. Google will distribute ad-supported content from MTV Networks to targeted website publishers, allowing publishers [via AdSense] to showcase clips from premium programming like Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants and MTV’s Laguna Beach to enhance the content on their websites.

Google Video also offers MTV Network videos for sale, they announced. Clicking on the thumbnails on this Google Video/ MTV page I get lots of “not found” messages at the moment. Other videos, like Punk’d, are available, but can’t be bought everywhere outside the US.
