NBC News went live today with the formal launch of NBCUniversalArchives.com, a new website that simplifies the purchase of material from all NBCUniversal businesses, including NBC News, NBC Sports, NBC Entertainment, Universal Studios, Universal Pictures, Telemundo, The Weather Channel, NBC Radio and NBC Photobank.
Developing and maintaining the site is the responsibility of NBC News. “We realized that by pulling together the rich assets of various NBCU collections onto one platform, we could make it easier than ever before for the creative community to access and purchase our content,” said Cheryl Gould, senior vice president at NBC News. “We’re very proud of NBCUniversalArchives.com and believe it demonstrates our ability to think creatively and strategically about the depth and value of our rich historical archives.”
Available clips span 70 years of broadcast history, and more will be added as the digitization process continues. Clients can screen footage, search the database, download previews and immediately clip and make credit card purchases online. Broadcast & Cable has more details about the site and its operations.
