"This is another great example of utilizing CBS' diverse portfolio of assets to extend our marketing reach for the launch of the Fall season."

"We're very excited to bring SURVIVOR fans and our CNET audience an exclusive first look at this long-running hit series, and couldn't imagine a better way to premiere our own HD-video player," said Joe Gillespie, Executive Vice President, CBS Interactive. "The launch of our own HD-video player now gives us the ability to provide our users with the rich, detailed video they are becoming more accustomed to as the popularity of HDTVs and HD programming increases."
