The next CBS hit you see may be on Netflix

This has been a big year for Internet television. In the last year Netflix has launched two original shows that have seen marked success. And it’s no surprise that media giant CBS would want to tap into the tens of millions of viewers (and growing) that subscribe to streaming services.

That may be a normal downturn for the company, especially after the end of its hit show How I Met Your Mother. – Ruth Reader,VentureBeat
