Weekly video packages include featured product reviews, interviews with industry experts, and top 10 lists of best-selling books, DVDs and video games on Buy.com. Each 30 minute episode will be comprised of multiple segments.

Instant Media, a developer of high-definition IPTV solutions, will provide the weekly half-hour shows on its network of registered users. On this channel, the show will include ads. The initial program includes spots from FedEx, Nissan, Sony PlayStation, AIG, Focus Films and Neutrogena.
