Internet television network Revision3 is launching The Digg Reel, a new weekly show that will highlight the most popular videos submitted to Digg.com.
The Wednesday show will include 10 to 15 minutes of clips from the most popular videos on Digg that week as voted by the users of the popular news ranking site. In addition to highlighting the videos, the show will include the best comments from the Digg online community, said Jim Louderback, CEO of Revision3 Corp.
Viewers will also go behind the scenes to meet the creators of the videos to find out how, when, where and why the video was made.
"There is so much user-generated and other video on the Web and so much of it is not very good," Louderback said. "It's great to have the community select it. In 15 minutes, you're going to be able to be completely updated on all the top videos each week that the Internet is buzzing about.
Jay Adelson, CEO of Digg Inc. and a founder of Revision3, along with Digg founder Kevin Rose, said that the popularity of videos on Digg shows how a large social content community can really help users find the best video content available.
"Revision3 will take it to the next level by giving viewers something they can't get anywhere else -- short clips from those videos, comments from our community and a behind-the-scenes perspective," Adelson said in a statement.
Revision3, which was created in 2005, served up more than 25 million shows and more than 103 million clips in 2007 through its Web site, the company announced early this month. In addition, it signed on advertisers like Sony, Virgin, Microsoft, Warner Bros., GoDaddy, Netflix and Intel last year, the company said.
