Showtime may be fretting about its Homeland season 3 premiere leaking online, but ABC has a different strategy – purposely making three of its new series available ahead of their broadcast launches.

~ MORE GOOD STUFF ~

In a Wednesday appearance, CBS CEO Leslie Moonves confirmed on CNBC that digital rights played a big part in the dispute with Time Warner Cable that led to a month-long blackout for over three million TWC subscribers. “One of the things we were fighting for is the ability to slice and dice our content all over the place,” said Moonves. “To put it on Netflix, to put it on Amazon, to let people binge view.”
 
MTV announced launch dates for two new docu-series designed to appeal to millennials.
