AOL gives exclusive sneak peek for fall TV

America Online will stream clips of new shows from NBC, CBS and the WB Network.

America Online said Tuesday that it will stream the pilot episode of the WB Network's new show "Jack and Bobby." AOL will allow subscribers to watch the entire program for a week in hopes of generating hype before the show premieres this fall. The company also will stream clips from other new shows such as NBC's "Joey," CBS' "CSI: New York," and ABC's "Desperate Housewives." AOL and the WB Network are both divisions of Time Warner.

The premieres are part of AOL's strategy of promoting itself as a compelling add-on for broadband users. The company is trying to sell its AOL for Broadband service for $14.95 to customers using a high-speed Internet connection through cable or local telephone providers. AOL's core dial-up service has lost more than 3 million subscribers over the past two years.
