Fox Offers Shows for Sale on Network Site

Still more options for online viewing/download, this time directly from a major network.

From this article at NewTeeVee:

"FOX is really pushing web and digital distribution (despite a few lawsuits1 to the contrary), releasing episodes on MySpace and DVD shortly after they air (and sometimes before2). We’re pretty sure it’s the first network to offer primetime shows for download on its own sites. Rollout is scheduled for “the coming year.”


Affiliates can sell about 30 percent of ad inventory for the streaming shows, in line with the deal ABC cut with its own affiliates last fall, according to Broadcasting & Cable4."
