GUBA VIDEOS CAN BE VIEWED ON TV VIA APPLE FRONT ROW SOFTWARE.

GUBA, San Francisco, Calif., a video search engine, has introduced GUBA video downloads to television sets using Apple's new Front Row software for the Mac mini, iMac and MacBook Pro. This feature allows users to play videos directly from GUBA's iPod/iTunes format right to their TV. It is an easy and seamless way to choose from GUBA's thousands of Web videos and watch them comfortably in the living room on a big screen.

GUBA video content is automatically formatted for iTunes on both the Mac and PC, which is the same format supported by the Video iPod. Subscribers can create iTunes podcasts of any video group or search on GUBA, which can be automatically downloaded by iTunes. This content can be viewed on an iPod or, with the new Front Row feature, on a TV. This free enhancement to GUBA allows users to subscribe to RSS feeds with keywords or news groups matching their particular interests. When new videos matching these user-defined parameters are available on GUBA, the videos are automatically downloaded into iTunes via RSS and available for immediate viewing.

"By combining GUBA with the new Front Row feature, we have been able to reach a whole new level of video-on-demand," said Thomas McInerney, CEO of GUBA. "We have one of the largest libraries of iTunes/iPod-ready video content in the world and we are excited to provide our subscribers with the ability to view these videos on their TVs via the family of Mac computers. The Front Row feature will allow GUBA subscribers to easily browse and share content with friends and family virtually any time, anywhere."

The full-screen Front Row feature merges the TV and computing experience by providing intuitive menus, large text to easily browse music and videos, and is just as easy as browsing videos on an iPod. Mac's Front Row also includes an Apple remote and can play videos saved on other computers on the home network using iTunes' share videos feature.

GUBA is an enhanced service for searching, downloading, and viewing terabytes of rich media content from Usenet. Usenet contains terabytes of new and unique content and is considered the world's largest electronic bulletin board and predecessor network to the World Wide Web. While Usenet is an integral part of the Internet, multimedia content posted to Usenet is not indexed by the major search engines, such as Yahoo!, Google or Microsoft.

GUBA makes it easy to locate compelling video and image content by entering a search term and clicking on a result, or simply browsing Usenet through the enhanced GUBA interface. As a copyright-friendly service, GUBA does not index feature films or MP3s and is fully DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) compliant.
