Yeah...that segment just felt way to weird and "stilted" as he was clearing reading a telepromptor for that. I'm surprised he didn't suggest a website for "more information."

As of August 15, 2011 customers of DISH Network will be the first to access new episodes of FOX shows online; all other online viewers will be able to watch 8 days after the episode airs. DISH Network is the first TV provider to launch with this feature but more are coming soon.

Yeah, that's the new shift in online streaming. For right now the shows are on Hulu. But now that the networks realize that people are watching online instead of on tv- the cable/dish provides are cutting theses sorts of deals. Because obviously if we watch tv on the internet, we're cutting the cable/satellite providers out of the loop.

And if the provider owns the network or channel, their going to do it to their own first.

It's sort of like if the USPS cut a deal with email providers that in order to get email you'd have to type in your zip code everytime, and they charged you.

Hulu has started a premium service with a monthly fee as well. Certain programs are only available to those who pay.

Looks like I'll be watching less TV then. I'm already on the verge of cancelling cable (as soon as I can convince the wife).

Hulu, Netflix and a digital antenna and we've got all we need.

Except now Netflix has that "two tiered" membership thing going on, and Hulu is pushing a lot of programming on the paid side, and the digital over the air signal in my area is pretty wonky sometimes, but that's pretty much what I use, at least the antenna and Hulu free.

Yeah, I was a little irked about the Netflix shift, but it's still cheaper than cable. I don't watch Hulu too often (SWMBO does much more than I do), and I guess widely available signal is another perk of life in the east coast megalopolis. I get full signal from two major cities, and more channels free over the air than I used to have to pay for with cable (prior to digital, that is). Only thing lacking is sports coverage.

I do, however, get Fox over the air from multiple sources so watching Master Chef isn't a problem

Good job to those that survived that episode.
That Salmon pressure test was truly diabolical.

It's fun seeing it done so well. I wish I was able to do that so effortlessly.
It's all about practice, practice and more practice.

Now the fish guy next door at the Chinese market, he has MAD skills.
