Sony launches ‘Minisode Network’ on MySpace

Sony MySpace Minisode NetworkEver wanted to sit back and watch a classic episode of Who’s the Boss?, but you just don’t have the 30 minutes it requires to catch it on TV Land? Sony has solved your dilemma: the “Minisode Network.” The new service brings together more than a dozen shows in very compressed form. Honda has signed on as a sponsor, with only eight seconds of ads per clip. For now the network is only on MySpace, but could expand to other platforms after the exclusive deal ends in August. I sampled Boss episode “Samantha Grows Up” – and despite some jarring edits, the plot made sense, there’s some laughs, and you even get a few seconds of the classic theme song.

It’s a brand new life around the bend indeed.
