MySpace, Sony launch minisode Network


MUMBAI: MySpace has launched The Minisode Network, a selection of episodes from hit TV shows from the Sony Pictures Television library that have been pared down for the Internet audience.

MySpace Video users can watch minisodes from each series at, each of which is three to five minutes in length, and retains the full story arc of the original episode. 

The Minisode Network will launch with three episodes each from 15 classic series: Partridge Family, Starsky & Hutch, TJ Hooker, Charlie’s Angels, Diff’rent Strokes, Facts of Life, Silver Spoons, Who’s the Boss?, What’s Happening!!, Dilbert, Sheena, Fantasy Island, Police Woman, VIP and Ricki Lake. New minisodes will be added weekly with more than 500 episodes available by the end of the year.

Honda has signed on as The Minisode Network’s exclusive launch sponsor, featuring their bite-sized wonder, the new Fit car. In addition to placement on the main page, and in keeping with the unique, brief structure of the minisodes, Honda will present a three second billboard and a five second mini-mercial at the top of each episode. Honda will be the sole sponsor of The Minisode Network for its initial exclusive run on MySpace.
