CBS BRINGS PROGRAMMING FROM ONE OF THE LARGEST TELEVISION LIBRARIES TO THE CBS AUDIENCE NETWORK

NEW YORK, Feb. 21 - CBS Interactive today announced that it will begin offering Television Classics from the CBS Library, which is one of the largest television programming libraries in the entertainment business, online and across the CBS Audience Network. The initial lineup includes full-length episodes of STAR TREK, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, MACGYVER, HAWAII FIVE-O and MELROSE PLACE, with more programs and clips to be added in the coming months. The distribution of Television Classics across the CBS Audience Network follows the same open, non-exclusive strategy that CBS has been using for its content online for the last nine months. All content is ad-supported, free to the consumer, and available immediately.

"CBS's commitment and ability to move quickly and aggressively to monetize and distribute content online is awesome," said Quincy Smith, President, CBS Interactive. "With offerings in entertainment, news and sports, this is about solving for what the user wants and staying focused around CBS content. Furthermore, meshing this content with the interactivity of the Web allows for more comprehensive experiences around each show - not simply a broadcast model."

The initial programming lineup for Television Classics on CBS.com and across the CBS Audience Network includes full episodes the following:

�� STAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES - Seasons 1, 2 and 3

�� THE TWILIGHT ZONE - Seasons 1 and 2

�� MACGYVER - Season 1

�� HAWAII FIVE-O - Season 1

�� MELROSE PLACE - Season 1

The more than 300 Web sites currently making up the CBS Audience Network includes partners such as AOL, Microsoft, CNET Networks, Comcast, Joost, Bebo, Netvibes, Sling Media and Veoh and social application partners including Automattic, Brightcove, Clearspring, DAVE Networks, Goowy Media, meebo, MeeVee, Musestorm, Ning, RockYou!, Slide, VideoEgg, Voxant and vSocial as well as Web sites from CBS's owned television, radio, and affiliated stations. The growing slate of CBS entertainment, news and sports content available includes a roster of full episodes, clips and highlights based on CBS and Showtime programming as well as original made-for-the-web content from EyeLab, a programming unit that produces and distributes short form video to the CBS Audience Network. All content is ad supported and free to consumers.
