Comcastic Housewives!

The Comcast Corporation and the Walt Disney Company have agreed to a new distribution deal that would bring Disney programming to Comcast's On Demand service.  A few details of the deal have been reported here, for example.  Comcast paid $1.23 billion dollars for the distribution rights to Disney programming and also got a 39.5% stake in E Entermainment Television.  Disney owns ten broadcast television stations, including ABC and the various ESPN joints.  Episodes of ABC hits such as "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" will be available On Demand within 12 hours of their original broadcasts, which means I can now not watch them whenever I don't want to. 

Actually, On Demand is a wonderful feature.  I never would have finished the article I wrote this summer if I could not have distracted my five-year-old daughter through the 24/7 availability of "Blues Clues" and "Dora the Explorer."
