Lycos Cinema combines on-demand video with real-time chat. After logging in, users choose from a random mix of TV and movies – both free and paid content – and IM about the show/film. Hardly anything ground-breaking, right?
Lycos is pitching this service as “your online social scene – a virtual couch.” The real-time conversation takes place in what feels like a ’90s chatroom and, in many ways, the site is just another video portal.
Eh…maybe just Web 2.5…on a good day.
