Business News:Google Set to Sell Video From CBS, NBA

From AP via Yahoo:

NEW YORK - Google Inc. will let consumers buy video over the Internet from CBS, the NBA and other providers, becoming the latest company to explore the new method of distributing TV content, according to a report Thursday.

The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter, said Google plans to make the announcement Friday at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Google began making video available for free last year, offering everything from amateur footage of a kid falling off a roof to the premiere episode of the television show "Everybody Hates Chris," which broadcasts on UPN, a CBS Corp. network.
