ABC, Warner Bros. Share Online Streaming Rights for 4 Shows

Sep 6, 2007  •  Post A Comment

ABC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television Group have partnered for an experimental deal on the streaming distribution rights of WBTV shows airing on ABC.
“Pushing Daisies,” “Men in Trees,” “Notes From the Underbelly” and “Big Shots” will be available for streaming on ABC.com for the first year, ABC said. The episodes will be available at ABC for four weeks starting the day after the episode’s initial broadcast.
ABC will receive advertising revenue from the streams and will be able to use the pilots on alternative platforms to launch the programs.
Warner Bros. obtains the rights for streaming of those same episodes in the second year, along with digital downloads and DVD box set rights.
While Warner Bros. has the rights to stream in the second year, the material will be branded and will promote back to ABC.
“This announcement reiterates our commitment to keep our viewers and their needs front and center as we continue to lead in the digital arena,” Anne Sweeney, Disney-ABC Television Group president, said in a statement.
