Web TV may be delivering Internet content to TV screens, but a venture of CMP Media and Conus Communications will deliver TV video to PC screens. CMP's First-TV (www.first-tv.com) will partner with Conus, a satellite newsgathering cooperative, to offer news from Conus' All News Channel for broadcast via the Web. When it starts in January, the First-TV/Conus show will be available Monday through Friday starting at 6 p.m. each day.
Separately, Internet Broadcasting System said it will create Channel 2000 with Los Angeles CBS affiliate KCBS-TV. Channel 2000 will include news and information content from KCBS, plus other local information and entertainment. It's the second "Channel" concept from IBS; it already created Channel 4000 in Minneapolis with WCCO (www.wcco.com), the CBS affiliate there.
