bud.tv is a marketing venture of the Anheuser-Busch brewing company (the manufacturers of the Budweiser beer brand) in the form of an online entertainment network. The project, which was launched in February 2007 just after the American Super Bowl, was rumoured to cost more than $30 million in its first year. The head of the project, as well as its originator, is Jim Schumacker, an executive at A-B.

The project failed to attract the number of expected visitors in its first months of operation, and was expected to fold by the year's end [cite web | url=http://online.wsj.com/article/SB117988898882511786.html?mod=todays_us_marketplace | title=Anheuser's Bud.TV Hits an Online Wall | date=2007-05-22 | publisher=Wall Street Journal] , although as of August, 2008 it was still online. Two possible causes for the site's lack of success are a lack of compelling content and a difficult-to-use age verification system.
