Current TV, which premiered Monday, August 1, 2005, calls its programming "viewer-created content, or VC2, ... created in the Current Studio, an online extension of [its] real studios in San Francisco and LA." Current says that "Anybody can join in to produce VC2 (and get paid for it) or watch and vote for what goes on TV." [1]


"Billed as the 'first national network created by, for and with an 18-to-34-year-old audience,' Al Gore's Current TV will launch August 1st in 20 million homes. Programming is designed to show younger audiences what's going on in their lives. It will do so in short bursts called 'pods,' which will vary in length from 15 seconds to five minutes." [2]
