Yahoo! Screen is an on-demand streaming service for TV shows, movies, webisodes and other new media.

The homepage contains editorially-featured videos that change daily and skew towards comedy, current events, viral videos, and premium entertainment content.


Yahoo! Screen began as Yahoo! Video, a video sharing website on which users could upload and share videos. At launch, Yahoo! Video was an internet-wide video search engine. Yahoo added the ability to upload and share video clips in June 2006. A re-designed site was launched in February 2008 that changed the focus to Yahoo!-hosted video only.

On December 15, 2010, Yahoo! Video's functionality to upload video was removed for its relaunch as Yahoo Screen the following year. All user-generated content was removed on March 15, 2011.[1] The content that Yahoo deleted was saved by the Archive Team. The Yahoo Screen rebrand was launched October 2011, alongside eight original programs.[2] Yahoo Screen has streamed three seasons of its Emmy-nominated[3] original series, Burning Love, which was syndicated for TV through E! in 2013.

In June 2014, Yahoo! announced that it had picked up former NBC sitcom Community for its sixth season which will be distributed via Yahoo Screen.[4]
