Online movie rental company Netflix has signed distribution deals with two heavy hitters from the TV world -- the CBS Television Network and the Disney-ABC Television Group. Netflix will soon have a stable of new and syndicated television shows that its users can stream over the Internet -- "CSI," "NCIS," "Hannah Montana," "Wizards of Waverly Place," "Star Trek," "Family Ties" and "MacGyver," among others. Though known mostly for its online DVD rental business, Netflix launched an on-demand style service about 18 months ago.

Somebody recently asked me why people couldn't just run out to Blockbuster or order a DVD to be delivered in the mail.

Do you think that pre-historic people challenged the need for fire?
