Digital Podcast 20: Dave Network’s Rex Wong on Social Broadcast Networks

Posted on

DAVE Networks LogoRex Wong, CEO of DAVE Networks, met with me at Digital Hollywood. DAVE Networks provides white label social networks. That means that DAVE Networks provides the infrastructure to power sites like America’s Funniest Home Videos, Stargate’s Community and Dave.TV. The users of the sites don’t see DAVE Networks, they see the customer’s brand. The customers get the benefits of offering a wide range of social community tools to their users.

DAVE Networks

The system provides the tools to deploy a custom social broadcast network, including

  • Self publishing
  • Video upload, download, rating, comments
  • Blog, video blog, moblog
  • DAVE points system
  • A modular player can be customized with your brand and embedded in user’s MySpace, blog or web page
  • User contests

Rex also told me about an exciting new project that DAVE Networks has launched called Next.TV. NEXT.TV, a competitor to the much hyped Joost, is a new Internet TV service that delivers over 50 channels of high quality TV content. NEXT.TV’s content is sponsored by advertisers so that you can get premium TV content for free.


NEXT.TV will be available initially in October 2007 on HP consumer notebooks. A version will also be available to the general public shortly thereafter for download of which you can sign up to be part of the Private Beta Program by signing up at
