CBS.com Now Streaming in 1080p HD13 May, 2009 By: Erik Gruenwedel
CBS Interactive May 13 upgraded its HD Gallery (www.cbs.com/hd) to include 1080p resolution. Now aficionados of online repurposed TV programming can watch full episodes and clips of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “CSI: NY,” “CSI: Miami,” “NCIS,” “Survivor,” and “How I Met Your Mother,” among others, in 1080p, the highest HD resolution available.
The CBS Corp. subsidiary said the exclusive sponsor for the ad-supported HD streams is chipmaker Intel, whose technology helps make online video a reality.
“The movement of people watching more and more video, TV and movies online has been made possible, in part, by silicon, the key ingredient in Intel’s microprocessors,” said Heather Dixon, consumer marketing director for Intel Americas.
