Web Video Splits Cable Networks, Operators

The increasing number of full episodes of cable network program being made available over the Web is displeasing some cable operators, the New York Times says. Cable operators pay big fees to carry cable networks and they aren’t keen on viewers being able to see those shows for free as the networks pursue more viewers and ad dollars. “If they put content they ask cable companies to pay for online for free, they are making it less valuable and we should be expected to pay less for it,” a Time Warner Cable spokesman said.
