And On The Flip Side of the Online Video Spectrum:

NBC Poised To Sell Digital Downloads. (Free registration required.)

Here's the latest attempt by Big Network TV to generate revenue directly from consumers for their standard TV offering. They'll be selling flotsam like five-minute video clips of SNL for a buck ninety-nine, although you'll also be able to buy sketchy-quality videos of shows like "The Office" as well.

I predict this will not work in the long-term -- meaning sustain a profitable SKU for anything longer than a year -- for the opposite of many of the reasons I elucidated in my preceding post.
