Katie Couric is Video-Casting

Which really just means CBS is distributing excerpts of her short interview segments online. For example, today's video is of her interview with President Bush. All three of her "Eye-to-Eye" online segments can be found at CBS's website. I rarely have time to sit down and watch the CBS Evening News, but I'll happily watch the segments I'm interested in at my own convenience. Distributing online helps CBS turn a non-viewer into a viewer. I'd even watch short ads, if it would mean the entire content of every nightly broadcast were segmented and made available online.

ABC was offering ad-supported streams of Alias, Lost and Desperate Housewives online for a while. They stopped when the seasons finished, but it'll be interesting to see if they start doing it again when the new seasons start.

NBC streams the complete Nightly News on demand, starting at 10pm. But they use Windows Media Player... ewwww
