CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:  A day after HBO joined the fold, CBS became the first broadcast network to sign on to the Comcast On Demand Online trial, slated to begin in a sample of 5,000 homes across the U.S. later this month.

The network’s site competes directly with and Fancast in the entertainment portal business; CBS is the only major broadcast network not part of Hulu; and CBS is the only network without sister, dual revenue stream cable networks. It must rely on retransmission agreements to survive, agreements Comcast has been vocally reluctant to sign.   Full edition: CYN DIGITAL
