Yahoo Broadcast

The former Webcasting division of Yahoo that broadcast live and archived TV and radio shows as well as on-demand movies, sports and other audio and video material. It also offered organizations Webcasting for private meetings such as conferences and distance learning. Originally the broadcast.com website founded by Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner in 1995, that company was acquired by Yahoo in 1999. In 2003, Yahoo Broadcast was superseded by Yahoo Platinum, a paid subscription service offering content via dial-up and DSL. Platinum was eventually disbanded.
