Free newspaper DAG will soon start with Zie.nl, a guide and social network around online TV and video.

Zie.nl is a TV and video guide, with which users can also assess videos and TV programs in a so-called 'viewing cloud'. With that, Zie.nl must create some order in the chaos of online video and TV streams. Moreover, the site works as a kind of social network around the taste for programs.

The start of the site was announced on Tuesday evening by Blueace.nl, which offers a password for a beta version of Zie.nl. The site also offers viewer profiles of ordinary viewers and well-known Dutch people. In addition, the guide function on the site combines 175 TV channels with video sites such as YouTube and Google Video. It is also possible to view previews of the online clips and to click on Program Missed and similar sites with other broadcasters.

The viewing cloud can be adjusted to suit your own preferences with the help of your own profile. Zie.nl visitors can also leave comments per TV program or web video. One of the webloggers on Blueace.nl describes Zie.nl as 'a startup within KPN'.

Zie.nl will also appear on paper in DAG. The RTV pages of the free daily newspaper are called Zie.nl. There is also a 'viewing cloud' of a celebrity in the newspaper.
