US cable network Lifetime has partnered with Yahoo! TV to show full episodes of its new dramas A Side Order of Life and State of Mind prior to their boradcast airing. It’s an expansion of Lifetime’s earlier deals with Yahoo! TV, which saw sneak previews of Army Wives offered via the portal.
Other US nets which have experimented with online premieres include CBS, which streamed Jericho on Yahoo! and NBC, which offered Studio Sixty on the Sunset Strip via AOL.
