NBC offers viewers free 'Conviction' download two weeks before debut

UPI News Service, 02/21/2006

NBC Tuesday broke network ground by offering the pilot episode of its
new drama
"Conviction" as a free download two weeks before its TV debut.

The "Conviction" pilot was made available Tuesday morning on Apple's
music store along with a number of bonus features, Daily Variety

While UPN offered "Everbody Loves Chris" and WB offered "Jack and
Bobby" to Web
surfers before those two shows debuted, they were offered only as video
not downloads, Variety noted.

Video streams can only be watched on computers while downloads become
property of the viewer.

Just because you are able to download a TV show, doesn't mean that it becomes your property exactly.

The show is still the property of the network. They're just letting you watch it on your computer.

I think it's really great that you can download it and watch it whenever you want.

That's a good point, Steve.

We need Kristin to gives us the low-down on intellectual property, rights and the such!
