Ustream to make content available via Blinkx

Internet video platform provider Blinkx has struck a deal with social video platform provider Ustream to enable Ustream events to be shown live on the Blinkx.com portal. 

The first Ustream event to be shown on Blinkx.com will be this week’s 2013 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. Ustream will place advertising against the stream and participate in a revenue share with Blinkx.

“We’re very pleased to partner with Ustream to broadcast live events, and thrilled to launch this opportunity by bringing a legendary festival like Bonnaroo to blinkx.com,” said S Brian Mukherjee, CEO of Blinkx. “Ustream’s live Bonnaroo coverage will allow music-loving blinkx users around the world to enjoy the same fantastic lineup on their laptops as enjoyed by fans camped out on location in Tennessee.”

San Francisco-based Ustream, which was originally founded to connect military service members with their families, provides a cloud-based streaming network and has facilities in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Budapest, Tokyo, and Seoul.
