Bullocks – no Star Trek for youSaturday, October 11, 2008 at 18:10 | Posted in entertainment, Media, youtube | Leave a comment
YouTube an CBS have reached an agreement on legitimate streaming of CBS content:
CBS wasn’t ready to share its ad revenue with Hulu in March, but the network is alright splitting those dollars with YouTube. Today, CBS began streaming content on Google’ video site. For now the network is showing a random smattering of shows that include “MacGyver,” “Star Trek,” the original “Beverly Hills 90210,” and current episodes of “The Young and the Restless.” Season premieres of Showtime’s “Dexter” and “Californication” will also be available.
While the content does not sound like my pint of beer, it is positive per se that the network is taking steps in a more sensible direction in terms of making their content available in the web. As it turns out, though, I need not bother anyway:
No cookie for me. Did not want one in the first place so I do not mind. I suppose anybody hereabouts who want to watch this sort of shows can continue to do so without any revenue floating to CBS and YouTube. It is technically illegal but I do not think they mind.
