AOL and WB, TV on demand
Here is the press release announcing AOL and Warner Brothers venture into on demand television, on the web, that everyone is talking about.
Initially it sounds good, but I'm wary of anything that AOL are involved with. For example
These series will be offered in a new DVD quality video format called "AOL Hi-Q."
Hmm. Why not just use XVID or MP4? Suspicious. DRM ahoy? It also comes with adverts to pay for it.
Out of the list of shows however there are some I'd like to see:
Babylon 5 (because my VHS copies are a bit old now)
La Femme Nikita
The New Adventures of Batman
So some interesting shows, we'll have to watch how the reality pans out I guess.
