The article announces the introduction of a video distribution service by advertising and content network Glam Media for its network of affiliated sites. The service is called GlamTV and is targeted at brand advertisers hoping to take advantage of the explosion of video on the web, but are not enthralled by the poor quality, user-generated video made popular by sites such as YouTube. Venture-backed Glam has put together a network of partner sites, content providers, and some of its own sites all focused on the needs of women 18 to 44 years old.
