MySpace to Sell TV Show Downloads Starting With 24
Posted on May 16, 2006These days it seems like every major media company and Internet portal is quickly becoming a video store. MySpace will now compete with other download-to-own video retailers. MySpace's downloads will start with the popular 24 series which runs on the Fox Network. MySpace is owned by News Corp., which also owns the Fox Network.
MySpace is also claiming to be the largest video site on the web -- larger than YouTube, Google Video or any other site.
Ross Levinsohn, president of Fox Interactive Media, said in a statement, "MySpace is the largest video site on the Web, with more video uploaded every day than any other site on the Internet."
The article did not discuss whether MySpace will sell any videos that aren't not Fox properties. We don't see 24 listed on MySpace Videos yet. It is not on the homepage yet either.
