Yahoo To Grab Exclusive Online Hosting Rights To SNL Content
Yahoo! will also feature current season episodes non-exclusively and has distribution rights for library show clips outside of the U.S. non-exclusively. Marissa Mayer, Yahoo! President and CEO, said. "We are thrilled to give Yahoo! users the most comprehensive collection of 'SNL' content available on the web, and make Yahoo! a home for current season clips, as well as clips from the entire 38-season archive." Yahoo! and Broadway Video Entertainment will collaborate on building a digital hub for the "SNL" programming, which will be promoted across Yahoo!'s network. Archived "SNL" content will be removed from other video platforms and available exclusively on the digital hub for one year.
Here's the real question: is this a one-off experiment for Yahoo, or are more models just like this already in the works?
