Viacom putting The Daily Show online for Free

September 8, 2007

This is a great move for Viacom they are putting The Daily Show with Jon Stewart online for free.  I expect it will have many ads but it is a step in the right direction.  Viacom must realize that TV and the internet will one day be one.  It is too bad the Colbert Report isn’t being put on the internet, or on YouTube.  Viacom needs to partner with YouTube and provide access to their tv series as long as they get 50% of the profit YouTube makes on them.  Although Viacom has it’s own media player it is choked full of ads and it just can’t beat YouTube.  By putting shows on a quality site like YouTube it shows that they are trying to move on to the internet.
