CNET TV / CBS The Early Show
Video is hot. It's cheaper than ever to produce, and fresh distribution channels are emerging. On the consumer tech front, CNET Networks yesterday announced CNET TV, a video-on-demand (VOD) package of instructional content, news and reviews to be available in June through Cox Communications, TVN Entertainment and TiVo, and on the web later this summer.
