CBS are revamping their web player, and in the process they’re making it possible to embed it on outside websites. Other news includes HD picture quality, full-screen viewing, and a new interface. The CBS web player will be upgraded over the coming months.
That means that CBS is doing what ABC is not, adding embed features to the player and embracing the blogosphere that is. I think it’s a good idea, since the Hulu service is rumored to allow embedding soon enough, and I’m sure the competing networks would like to steal some Hulu thunder.
