MTV Overdrive

MTV Overdrive - MTV's new video service launched this past weekend. There doesn't seem to be a MediaCenter version yet, although the application is essentially a 10' UI built with Flash. It includes music videos (appears to be in the range of serveral hundred), news, movie trailers and previews and highlights from some of their exclusive tv programming. The application includes both host- and user-side playlisting, e-commerce links to CDs & DVDs, sponsorship(s) woven throughout and in-stream advertising. It's too bad for them (and their viewers) that their video looks awful when a user goes into full screen mode...
