AOL launches online video network

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 video hub, 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, including a weekly reality show, “Digital Justice,” about Internet crimes and scripted series about four soccer moms, “Little Women Big Cars.”
