Two television networks have struck a deal with a cable provider to offer on-demand downloads of some of their most popular shows, providing perhaps the clearest glimpse yet of the choices consumers will soon have as cable and the Internet converge. In separate announcements, NBC and CBS each said they would begin offering content for download, CBS sending its programs through Comcast's digital network and NBC distributing its shows via DirecTV.
Networks Offer 99 Cent Download of Prime-Time Shows.
Ok they're not offering a "Download", they're offering nothing more than "pay-per-view" or at most "cable on demand", which is NOTHING NEW. If they were offering it for "Download", that would mean that I would have it, and then be able to disconnect from their network and view it at my leisure. I'm SURE that this will not be possible with the current offering.
