Who will win the online downloads war?
Here are 3 different approaches that broadcasters are using to make their TV shows available online.
Here's how all 3 stack up:
- Fox is using a complicated revenue-share to offer its content for downloads.
- ABC is using an ad-supported model and will offer its content to be downloaded for free.
- NBC will offer its content for a small fee.
I have mixed feelings about all 3 approaches, but the broadcaster who offers their content for a small fee and has no ads in it will win out in the long run.
