I’ve talked before about ideas of alternate distribution methods for TV shows. Today I noticed that one show is making steps in the right direction.
Battlestar Galactica’s first episode is available to watch in its entirety, commercial free, on scifi.com!
Granted its only available in RealPlayer, and not as downloadable for repeat viewings, but this is a huge step in the right direction.
Also from show runner Ron Moore’s Q&A entry on his Battlestar blog:
“was this the first show to ever show a Bathroom on a space ship?”
It’s ground-breaking TV, baby. Talk about reinventing the genre.
