AOL to stream ABC programs on the web

ABC and AOLABC and this blog's parent company AOL have reached an agreement to stream ABC programming online. You can already watch a number of TV shows directly from ABC's website, but today's announcement brings us one step closer to being able to watch any program from any network without opening up 20 different web pages.

Although ABC's latest deal is with AOL, the announcement is part of a growing trend. When the networks began streaming TV shows online, the goal was to get people to visit a network website. Now we're seeing more networks teaming up to make content available on sites like MySpace, AOL, and Yahoo!.

While we may work for AOL here at TV Squad, our dream is that one day you'll be able to visit your favorite video portal and watch any show you want, not just AOL's.

ABC and AOL plan to split the advertising revenue from their new partnership. Each streaming television episode will include several commercials from national brands. AOL will also employ technology to determine viewers' locations and will display a single local commercial as well.
