VeohTV is an online video "aggregator" with the goal of delivering "Internet TV." You can access videos from multiple sites using a single player. A "DVR" for web video lets you record programs to watch later. While VeohTV does a pretty good job of adding a TV experience-like feel to watching videos online, the content is nothing new. But hey, at least you don't have to navigate to a bunch of different sites to get it.
