MidCenturyTV.com, a comprehensive guide to classic TV shows on the Web and DVD, has published a new directory to connect viewers to The Internet Archive's classic TV sub-collection of digital media. The new guide at www.midcenturytv.com/ia adds a user-friendly layer of indexing to over 2,000 historic videos at Internet Archive, a loosely organized repository which until now has had no such directory of shows. Internet TV viewers can now use MidCenturyTV.com to easily find and watch rare videos from such shows as The Jack Benny Program, Studio One, Wagon Train, and The Lucy Show.
"Web users have such a great treasure in the Classic TV section of Internet Archive," explains Bob Poulsen, president of MidCenturyTV.com, "and yet locating a desired show to watch can be challenging. MidCenturyTV.com has scanned the links to the collection and created a highly usable directory of every show known to exist at the archive. At this time, 143 shows and over 1,100 episodes are cataloged and indexed in a single concise resource."
In addition, MidCenturyTV.com continues to expand its database of streaming classic TV online and classic TV on DVD. Prime time network shows originally broadcast from 1948-1974 are documented and all known links to studio-authorized online content are displayed, leading users to such sites as Hulu and TVLand. Show titles can be browsed or found by a fuzzy search engine that tolerates misspellings. Historic prime time television schedules from the 1940s through 1970s are also presented, giving users the chance to remember a specific night of programming from the era of only three national networks. The schedules are browsable by year, and segmented by weekday and by network. DVDs of popular and obscure classic shows are similarly cataloged, including images of most DVD package covers. The site's mission is to give entertainment consumers more knowledge, choices, and convenience.
Launched in November, 2010, MidCenturyTV.com provides TV watchers an easy route to discovering great classic television shows online. The site aggregates links to streaming videos found at multiple sites, allowing users to begin viewing their favorite shows quickly - and avoid the frustration of overwhelming and incomplete results at the major search engines. Available DVDs of classic shows are also presented in a user-friendly manner, with links to check prices and to purchase. All data is verified by editors for accuracy and relevance.
