Get it while it's free. The NY Times has a good article about the status of video-on-demand today, an excellent snapshot of where we are. Josh Bernoff, an analyst at Forrester Research, appears to agree with me that video-on-demand will eventually be free with the comfortable trade-off American TV viewers already have with advertiser supported television. "In limited markets, CBS, for one, will begin offering reruns in January of hit shows like 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' for 99 cents an episode."
