News: Sony Pictures has come to YouTube. Minisodes — 5 minute videos — of old shows will be shown on the YouTube channel called The Minisode Network. The shows include Charlie’s Angels, Married with Children, Different Strokes, Bewitched, The Facts of Life, What’s Happening. Sony had already started posting these videos on MySpaceTV.
Analysis: I’ve always loved the idea of minisodes. I’m glad they’re finally hitting YouTube. Other copyright holders should dust off those old TV shows and start making minisodes. This is a great way to utilize old shows that would otherwise be sitting on a shelf somewhere.
