Huffington Post, with a $30 million cash injection from parent company AOL, is readying its own streaming video service, the Huffington Post Streaming Network (HPSN), for launch in the summer.

Initially, the blog plans to air 12 hours of live content during weekdays, with plans to expand to 16 hours of content daily next year. One hundred new in-house employees will be tasked with creating the content, a huge commitment in scope. 

Though little else is known, it’s been announced that other AOL properties such as Engadget and Tech Crunch will be contributing to help broaden the content.
