USAToday reports CBS will offer free, original entertainment on their new “innertube” service. By “free original entertainment”, they seem to mean behind the scenes snippets of the sort that were always available on CBS.com, now packaged into a new and really irritating interface. You’ll find the same Amazing Race insider videos and Daytime Emmy Awards red carpet chatlets and so forth. However, the new interface offers the uplifting option of actually blurring the text as you select it, providing the added bonus of instant migraine headaches.
You won’t find day-after on-line streaming, the way you will with ABC’s far superior site. Next down the line? Sci Fi will debut its new Sci Fi Pulse channel tomorrow. They promise to offer complete, uncut episodes, movies, as well as deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes.
