Google Debuts Video Search (BETA)

"Hot on the heels of Yahoo's video search announcement, Google is launching Google Video, a new experimental service that allows you to search across the full-text transcripts of San Francisco bay area television programs from 10 channels, as well as the programming from CSPAN 1 and CSPAN 2. Google Video functions by pulling down television signals through antennas and satellite dishes on the roof of the Googleplex and indexing the closed-caption information that's transmitted along with each broadcast."

"It's similar to Google print that's trying to take something that's not online and put it online," said John Piscitello, product manager for Google Video.

Though for most of its results, it shows "Video is currently not available" :(
So lets wait ...
