MySpace signs new TV deal

Social networking site MySpace has signed a deal to put its shows on TV.

The deal means that MySpaceTV shows such as Quarterlife, Roommates and Special Delivery will soon air on screens outside the US.

The deal was signed with the Shine Group which is run by Elizabeth Murdoch – daughter of Rupert Murdoch who owns MySpace parent News International.

The deal covers DVDs and merchandise but MySpace retains all net rights to its programmes.

Google and Yahoo to share web ads!

Yahoo and Google, the world’s two biggest search engines, have announced a two-week experiment that will see them share advertising space.

During the pilot, Google will be able to place ads alongside 3% of search results on Yahoo’s website.

Analysts say the move is designed to frustrate Microsoft, which has offered to buy Yahoo for $44.6bn (£22.6bn).
