TV Going To Internet

BetaNews | Fox to Put Prime Time Shows Online: "
Fox has signed a six-year revenue sharing agreement with its 187 affiliates that will allow it to make sixty percent of its prime time schedule available online. The move follows a similar one by Disney's ABC network that will put some of its most popular shows online a day after they originally air starting in May.Details of the Fox agreement have not been ironed out, including what shows would be made available and how they would be delivered, but the network is considering allowing local affiliates to place the programs on their own Web sites. The agreement is an extension of one struck in 1993 that gave the local affiliates some responsibility in paying for the rights to air National Football League games.
