Across the globe, anyone can watch TED Talks through TED.com, our YouTube channel, our mobile apps or our iTunes podcasts. (Have you checked out TED Studies on iTunes U?) Most recently, our new SmartTV app showcases TED in beautiful high definition through television set manufacturers like Samsung and telephone IPTV providers like TELUS, letting you browse our 1500+ talks on-demand.
But our globe-trekking distribution team has also created many special TED offerings to help spread ideas with the help of local partners. Here — as we get ready for TEDGlobal 2013, themed “Think Again” — a look at the ways you can watch TED around the world, in no particular order.
China: In China, there are multiple ways to get a dose of TED inspiration. Sina, one of China’s largest media companies (it owns Weibo, the Twitter of China), hosts TED Collections, eclectic playlists of talks around topics like Business, Education and Art. Youku, the second largest video site in the world after YouTube, has TED Shows — entertaining playlists of talks around themes designed for TV and movie fans. And NetEase, renowned for its Internet portal, offers TED Studies for universities.
