CBS News Reports it and NBC will offer hit TV show Video On Demand (VOD) for only 99¢ on Comcast Cable and DirecTV systems. This is only half the $1.99 Apple is charging for ABC shows, shorts and music videos via iTunes. Will Apple match their price? Will consumers be able to record what they pay 99¢ for? Will they be able to burn ripped versions to CDs or DVDs? And will the shows be offered in their original widescreen HD versions?
These are the questions that need answers between now and when these new services begin early next year.
