Where is the spotify / turntable.fm solution for video?

I use and love Spotify. I use and love Turntable.fm. Together they would be amazing. Where is the video version of this?

My Consumer Desire:

I want to be able to play any television episode, without ads. I want to be able to play any movie without ads. {Current “in theatre” all the way back to [tippy title=”the first video ever recorded.” header=”off” width=”460″ height=”365″]


I am willing to pay for this service. I watch a very little amount of television or movies, and I would be willing to pay as much as $15-$20 a month Рas long as it had what I wanted, when I wanted it. I feel confidant that the average american Рwho watches more than 4 hours of TV each day and is quickly switching to on demand mind set Рwould be willing to pay more.

I also want to be able to see what my friends are watching, and join them in a movie or TV show, and watch it with them. I may not use it often, but when a friend is watching an episode of Firefly, I want to be able to spontaneously jump into it with them, and comment on it as it happens. With voice. And obnoxious mis-quotes.

I also want friends to be able to line up programming for me. If a friend has been ranked as a good selector of documentary movies by many friends who I think tend to like similar movies as me, I want to see that person’s movie recommendations. (Friend here used to mean “Person connected to me in a social network).


Questions: Is this a viable business model? Would license fees overrun this? Is it already in the works? How can I get a beta invite?
