In a move the Wall Street Journal said could have a “ripple effect” for networks, CBS said it would will simulcast the soon-to-launch “Evening News with Katie Couric” live on the Internet. The WSJ ads, “Until now, no major TV networks have aired any of their programs on the Web simultaneously with television, although several of the networks have begun to stream programs after they’ve aired.” The ads for the online version will be sold separately.
This is news in 2006? I swear someone just put me in a time machine and dropped me off at the end of the 1990s. This is like watching Amazon’s rise as the traditional book sellers dabbled their plump, swollen, smelly toes into the online space.
CBS- here’s an idea. Tear down your website and just put up Katie’s bio on CBS.com. Make it appear as flash with music in the background. It would be very vogue.
