My name is Laurie, and I work for a new company called Instant Media (www.im.com). We offer a free program that combines an all-in-one media player, RSS feed viewer, and media download client. I thought that some of you might be interested in one of the channels we have to offer.
We have a partnership with TGR (Teton Gravity Research) where we provide seven of their full-length movies (including their latest, The Tangerine Dream) to our users for free. Most of them are freeskiing and snowboarding. They're DVD-quality, DRMed video and normally each movie would cost $13-27. And of course, if you love the movie, you can support TGR and buy the DVD!
In addition to the TGR movies, we offer a couple of extreme-sport-related podcasts (as well as about 300 other podcasts and two HD channels). We're also hoping to close deals with a few mainstream media companies in the near future.
I hope some of you give it a try. You can download I'M at www.im.com.The program is spy-ware and ad-ware free and instructions are on the support section of the website if you decide to uninstall but run into trouble (closing the program fully is a little tricky). Sadly, it doesn't work on Macs.
I'd be happy to answer any questions you have and feedback is warmly welcome.
