Prediction

Check out this story that I pulled off the AP wire this afternoon:

CBS Announces Broadband Channel

This news at about the same time that ABC has started posting its recently aired episodes of Lost, Alias, and Desperate Housewives to stream FOR FREE on their website…

I am banking on Internet television opening up a whole new dimension of entertainment possibilities in the next five years or so– imagine if networks no longer had to result to cancellation of ‘niche’ shows like Arrested Development or Family Guy, and instead could just relegate them to the web?

Or better still — this sort of distribution could open the gates for less conventional material to actually GET MADE, rather than banking on the drab, hopelessly formulaic, 22-minute schtick that saturates the average TV network (and causes me to watch almost nothing).
