thePlatform, a leading white-label video publishing company and subsidiary of Comcast, today disclosed via its blog that it is managing the online video efforts of two additional major Canadian media companies: 1) Canwest, Canada’s largest media company, including their largest broadcasting property, GlobalTV, and other specialty channels; and 2) the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), which needed an on-demand video and audio portal for broadcast TV, film clips, and webisodes from numerous Canadian and global content producers.
