Yahoo! fires up ‘Shootout’

Bart-Guber show to be available soon after b'cast

In one of the fastest online re-broadcasts of an entertainment TV show, Yahoo! Movies is offering streams of AMC’s film industry talkshow “Sunday Morning Shootout” immediately after it airs.

Program, hosted by Daily Variety editor in chief Peter Bart and producer Peter Guber, has featured guests Dustin Hoffman, Edward Norton and Tom Rothman. It airs Sundays at 11 a.m. and becomes available on Yahoo! Movies at noon, following its West Coast broadcast.

“This new relationship underscores the future of how the Internet and broadcasting companies will work together in the future,” said Jim Moloshok, senior VP of media, entertainment, information & finance for Yahoo!

While other technology programs have aired simultaneously online, and some network shows, such as “Big Brother,” offer additional content to online subscribers, “Sunday Morning Shootout” is one of the first entertainment programs to air in its entirety for free on the Internet immediately after appearing on TV.
