Fox to Offer Prime-Time Programs on the Web

As we predicted, after ABC announced it would offer its programs for Web streaming the other day, the other network sheep would fall in line, and now the Fox network has done just that. According to the Wall Street Journal, the network has signed a six-year agreement with its affiliates that allows Fox to stream 60% of its primetime schedule the morning after airing. The affiliates will be kept at bay with a 12.5% cut of the proceeds.

So after the success of CBS's March Madness NCAA tournament live Webfest, and NBC's offering of some of its programs on iTunes, we have quite a variety of television shows available via the Internet. Legitimately, that is.
