CBS cuts exclusive Internet news deal with Yahoo!
CBS, fresh from a deal with YouTube, has today announced an exclusive local news deal with Yahoo!
Yahoo News users can expect to see 10 to 20 news videos a day, according to a statement from Yahoo. The clips will include feature pieces, as well as breaking news footage. Visitors will be able to search for local video using zip codes.
Nifty move from CBS, and the deal proves how fast the distribution of content is becoming fragmeneted and how Yahoo just keeps getting closer and closer to becoming one huge Internet cable company. Look out Comcast!
