Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 6:58 pm

CBS and NBC have announced deals to offer replays of prime-time programs for 99 cents per episode, shifting television toward a sales model that gained popularity with downloaded music.

CBS is teaming up with Comcast Corp. and NBC with satellite operator DirecTV to offer the on-demand replays.

NBC Universal will offer commercial-free episodes of “Law & Order: SVU” and other shows to subscribers of DirecTV Group Inc. who use the satellite company’s new digital video recorder.

Comcast’s on-demand customers in some markets will be able to view “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “NCIS,” “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race” at their convenience.

Terms of the deals, which were announced Monday, were not disclosed.
