AOL is really In2TV

Web giant AOL and Warner Bros., both divisions of Time-Warner, have officially launched In2TV, a web service that allows users to watch episodes of classic TV shows online. The free service is ad supported, much like a TV network.

Currently, the site is organized into six different "channels," with two more scheduled to be added in the summer. Web surfers can choose from comedy, drama, cartoons, action, sci-fi, and vintage. The site also features games, polls, and quizzes that are tied to the shows.

Shows available on the site include Welcome Back, Kotter, Chico & The Man, Alice, Growing Pains, Sisters, and Kung Fu. Ads on In2TV will be limited to two minutes per 30-minute show, as opposed to the average eight minutes on broadcast TV.

Last night, the "station" threw a launch party at the Museum of Television and Radio in Beverly Hills, hosted by Welcome Back, Kotter star Gabe Kaplan. At the party, the late Freddie Prinze will be honored with the first In2TV Influencer Award.

The quality seems to be pretty poor and it skips so much! I'll stick to TV.com, thank you. :)

Went to the site, thought I would try watching a shows, updated my media player just for it, got the ads in the beginning, and the main episode never loads! i keep getting ads for all of them, but no episodes. Not worth it.
