SPOTLIGHT: Bud.TV traffic drops 40 percent in March


Bud.TV, an online entertainment network launched by Anheuser-Busch in February, saw traffic drop by 40 percent in March with just 152,000 viewers. A-B expected to attract 3 million unique monthly visitors by the end of the year. Some called the site's launch "underwhelming" as 253,000 tuned in during the month of February around the Super Bowl hype. Perhaps this is the end of corporate sponsored video portals? Not likely.
