News: USA Today has an excellent article, Networks work with Net, which discusses how the major networks are putting up more and more videos of at least some of their shows: “In most cases, episodes are streamed starting the day after broadcast to give fans a chance to catch up on missed episodes and to attract new viewers. In a reverse twist, CBS’ Innertube site will air all seven episodes of canceled serial Smith and have the producers explain where the story was headed.”
Analysis: I just did a quick run through of each of the above sites. They are getting slicker and slicker. This is one of those watershed moments that we’ll look back on as being the start of something good. Bye, bye, TV.
