Netflix to Rent TV Shows on the Net
Like other Netflix online offerings, CBS and Disney shows can be streamed by subscribers who pay $8.99 and up for a monthly DVD rental plan. The two networks already make their shows available on their own sites as well as various online download stores.
Netflix uses various set-top platforms for its online operation. This fall a new option will be added in the form of Microsoft's Xbox 360.
Roku, another Netflix partner, recently announced that it would open up its set-top platform to "anyone who wants to put their video service on this box," as CEO Anthony Wood said. To that end, Roku will release a software development kit.
