Episodes from the next cycle of veteran CBS reality series “Survivor” will be available for download on CBS.com hours after the show airs. “Survivor: Panama-Exile Island” premieres Feb. 2.

Viewers will be able to download entire episodes of “Survivor: Panama” to their computer for $1.99 from CBS.com. Each episode will be available shortly after midnight following its West Coast network broadcast. Customers can view episodes for up to 24 hours from the time they are ordered. The episodes will be available through June.

“It’s been our strategy to exploit content across as many platforms as possible, and putting this hugely popular series online is a natural fit,” said Leslie Moonves, president and CEO of CBS Corp., in a release. “This is not only a boon to fans of the show, who can now watch it at their leisure, but it also represents a great way to generate traffic for CBS.com while opening a whole new revenue stream for CBS.”
