Fox on Demand Adds Streaming Shows to MySpace

Oct 3, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Fox expanded its Fox on Demand streaming initiative Tuesday to put ad-supported episodes of Fox prime-time shows on MySpace in addition their appearances on Fox-owned local station Web sites.

In late August, Fox put episodes of some of its prime-time series on the Web sites of nine Fox-owned stations. Tuesday’s announcement expands on that by bringing ad-supported episodes of Fox shows to both MySpace and to Fox Web sites in 24 owned-and-operated markets.

In addition, the online offering is designed to maintain interest in Fox programming while the baseball playoffs are under way this month. Fox said it will run on-air promotions during Major League Baseball broadcasts to inform viewers of the new service.

The shows include “Bones,” “Prison Break,” “Standoff,” “Vanished,” “Talk Show With Spike Feresten,” “‘Til Death,” “The Loop” and “Justice.”

The service will include previously aired episodes of those shows. Additional episodes will be added this month and into November. The service is available at Myspace.com/Fox. Sponsors include Toyota and Burger King.
