NBC Universal will be introducing social networking tools on its Web site later this year along with streaming episodes of “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” NBC Digital Entertainment said Monday.
Beginning in September, NBC.com will showcase such networking capabilities as profiles containing user-generated content, online communities in which users can interact with network personalities, Widgets (interface items like dialog boxes and pop-up windows) will also be part of the site, as well as user blogs and photo and video galleries.
“You’ll see us place multiple bets on a lot of different technologies,” said Beth Comstock, president of integrated media at NBC Universal, at the company’s presentation Monday at the Television Critics Assn. at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
On August 27, NBC will begin streaming episodes of “Conan” on the site. Daily episodes will be available the next day at 5 a.m. PDT.
