TBS and TNT are getting into the online-TV act with their summer series. Much like ABC and NBC, the networks will be making each new episode of several original series available online at 3 a.m. the day after they air. The networks are the first major cable networks to commit to streaming a whole season of shows, though some smaller networks have tried it and other large ones have made individual episodes available online.
Episodes of original series "The Closer," "Heartland," "Saving Grace" and miniseries "The Company" will be available on TNT's Web site, while the TBS site will have episodes of "My Boys," "Tyler Perry's House of Payne," "The Bill Engvall Show" and "The Frank Show." "The Closer," "The Bill Engvall Show," "My Boys" and "The Frank Show" will also be available on iTunes.
I think this is a great idea — as long as they make the episodes available to as many people as possible. Right now the whole first season of "My Boys" is online, but only those with Windows computers can see it.
