McCaw’s video startup 1Cast upgrades, lowers sign-up gate

A month after launching its online news video service, Kirkland-based 1Cast is rolling out several upgrades.

The biggest change is that 1Cast is dropping the initial registration requirement – similar to a move made earlier by Hulu.com – so visitors can immediately start watching news clips without having to sign up.

Chief Executive Anthony Bontrager wouldn’t say how many people are using the Craig McCaw-financed service, but said it’s far more than the company expected.

“We couldn’t be happier right now,” he said.

In the works but not ready yet are deals with additional broadcasters – 1Cast already deliver clips from services such as Reuters, Associated Press and CNBC – and applications for Windows and Android mobile devices, all expected in early 2009.
