New episodes of the popular “Survivor” reality television series will be made available for download directly from CBS’s Web site, a first in network TV, the company said Wednesday.
According to CNET’s News.com (Reuters), CBS is turning to the Internet and portable devices to attract new audiences.
CBS has been offering hit shows “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” on Google’s video service for $1.99 and on Comcast’s on-demand system for 99 cents.
This latest development by CBS now cuts out the distributor and allows CBS to sell directly to consumers.The new episodes will be available shortly after midnight following their airing on TV. Customers will be able to watch the episode for a 24-hour period after paying.
