NEW YORK (AP) -- AOL is launching an online video network that will gather its programming onto one platform, the latest bid by a major Internet destination to be a player in Web television.
The company announced the AOL On Network on Tuesday at a presentation of programming to advertisers in New York. It said the network will feature 14 content channels available online, on mobile, on tablets and through TV-connected devices.
AOL On will pull from some 320,000 short-form videos from AOL and its many publishers. The company also announced seven new original series.
The event Tuesday was part of the inaugural Digital Content NewFronts, in which digital outlets like YouTube and Yahoo are presenting their programming slates in the style of television upfronts.
