Bing Launches New Video Portal With Help From MSN

Bing and MSN have combined to create Bing Videos, a new video portal that combines the content from MSN Videos with Bing’s search technology.

Bing Videos

According to today’s announcement (and more here), the new site combines videos from a variety of sources. The former MSN Videos offered original programming, as well content from the likes of MSNBC, Fox Sports, National Geographic, and others. Bing Videos will house that content, and offer web-based videos from sites like YouTube, Hulu, MySpace, and others.

Videos are organized into a handful of categories (News, Sports, TV Shows, etc.) and there are sections for “Hot Viral Clips,” “Last Night on TV,” and “Best of Bing” among others.

Overall, it’s a compelling interface with what appears to be a lot of content, and finding exactly the specific type of video you want is painless. It may help Microsoft add to its second-place video market share, but as recent numbers suggest, it has a long, long way to go to even approach YouTube’s dominance.
