ABC to increase the number of shows available online

ABC logoABC has decided that their streaming video experiment from this past spring was so successful that they are going to continue it this fall. Of course, they're going to make a few little tweaks first. The player will be improved a bit, and there will be a few more commercials during each show than there were in the spring. But the biggest change is that the network has decided to shrink will be the time window in which each episode of a series will be available for four weeks (some episodes during the initial two-month trial were available for that entire time period). Episodes will become available just after they air.

Desparate Housewives and Lost will be available, just as they were last spring. There will be additional shows added, but the network hasn't announed yet what they will be. But the number will be more than the four that were offered in the spring. Any guesses?

I hope they add Grey's Anatomy! It's not on itunes and it wasn't offered last spring! I did watch Alias on there on the spring, it was easy, I didn't have to rely on setting the tape, and it was good when Lost went over a minute and my family missed it because I didn't tape long enough (they wanted to watch Amer. Idol instead, i can't understand why).

I'm guessing they'll show more of their new stuff, so that they can gain viewers.
