Showtime, this month, will begin offering free episodes of a select few of their programs online through the Yahoo! TV service.
Some programs said to be part of the service are Weeds, Dexter, Sleeper Cell and The L Word. These programs, and others will be available to view on the site from October 6-13.
While it’s not unusual in this day and age to stream shows online for free, it is when the medium is on a premium cable station (Showtime has done this sort of thing in the past with it’s critical favorite, but ratings starved original-series Huff).
The service will also stream free previews of new Showtime projects such as The Tudors, which will premiere on the network in 2007.
