Ice and DJ Pooh have teamed up with Microsoft to put together an online TV network called UNVTV.com.  The web site will be using Microsoft Silverlight for its programming, not the usual Adobe Flash that YouTube depends on. 

“We are thrilled to work with Ice Cube and DJ Pooh, both whom have proven track records and have been at the forefront in music, film and television,” stated John Case, GM of Microsoft’s Developer Division.  “We see UNVTV as a leading example of the changing landscape of how consumers experience entertainment, and how the industry is seeking new interactive platforms to better reach their target audiences. By using Silverlight, UVNTV will have the capabilities needed to take the user experience to another level.”

The interface looks very similar to MySpace, but the channels are specifically revolve around a hip-hop genre.  Some of the channels that UVNTV include Snoopadelic TV by Snoop Doggy Dogg, Christian Audigier’s Live TV, and Ice Cube’s Hip Hop 24/7. 

UVNTV.com also has a social network built-in.  Users can create profiles and submit show ideas.  Users will also be able to sign out for production gig try-outs.  The site will be fully launching in a few months.

    Whatz up Cube and DJ pooh it’s good to see that you guys show love to your fans like that because it gives young young rappers and actors a real chance to be seen and heard. I will be following and keepping in touch with you guys because theres alot of unseen talent here in St.Louis who don’t have a chance to be seen nor heard.

    My son rapper in (short-stop)I wish that there was a way that i could send u a demo of a couple of songs that he’ve done and i feel stongly about pushing.I stand behind him 100percent because of his story telling in his music.I know that action speaks louder than words and if u heard his muisc you’ll see what i’m saying if you looking for new talent it’s here in St.louis. Keep up the good work and maybe one day i’ll have the pleasure of meeting and shaking your hand. Thanks.

    Kudos go out to Ice Cube and DJ Pooh for constantly expanding and re-inventing yourselves. DJ Pooh, it was a pleasure meeting you at the Entertainment & Innovative Forum at UCLA recently. Please contact me, if you desire, in regards to the “backpack” concept/product. Thanks again for your participation at the Forum. God bless.
