History

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 premiered via Yahoo! Screen on March 17, 2015.[4] Within a month of Community's season six premiere, Yahoo! had premiered full first seasons of two new original series, Sin City Saints and Other Space, but available only to people in the USA.[5][6]

In June 2015, Yahoo! Screen won the worldwide rights to distribute the National Football League's International Series game between the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars, set to take place October 25. The one-off stream is the first NFL game to be broadcast (almost) exclusively through the Internet, with no television broadcast outside the Buffalo and Jacksonville markets.[7]
