Scripps Networks Interactive is expanding its reach in the video world.
The Knoxville-based lifestyle media company announced Thursday the launch of ulive, an online video site and distribution platform. The site curates videos from Scripps cable networks — HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and Great American Country.
In addition, ulive will offer more than 70 original video series featuring Scripps talent, social media stars and bloggers, according to a news release.
“With ulive we have created an online destination where anyone can enjoy entertaining and relevant videos for the way you live,” ulive President Jeff Meyer said in a statement. “It enables viewers to discover, watch and share what they love the most, across food, home, travel, parenting and wellness — and this is only the beginning of the site’s capabilities and content.”
Two of the new original series  launched Thursday — “What Will the Maid Think?” from Bert Kreischer, host of The Travel Channel show Trip Flip and “Bonkers Awesome!” from food blogger Joy the Baker.
