Original OSNews Interviews Times change. When the movies came about people said that it was a trend that will die soon. When the TV came out, even more people said that it won't catch on. And here we are again, at the dawn of IPTV, finding the first professionally-made, web-only, live action series: Sanctuary. Co-created by one of Sci-Fi Channel's Stargate SG-1 producers, Stage3Media's Damian Kindler was very kind to answer some of our questions about the promising project, which recently even hit a Guinness record as the most expensive web-only production ever ($4.5 million CDN). You can view behind-the-scenes and previews here and the first full 17-minute webisode here (includes a cameo of Stargate: Atlantis' own David Hewlett), while you can support the project by buying the HD DRM-free version of the webisodes at the official site.

Tried it

I tried it and it is an interesting show. But as others have pointed out it gets expensive very quickly. I prefer to watch things on my TV rather than my PC. So, you have to re-encode it from QT to a format supported by your DVD player. On my PC that takes a longggg time.... After that experence I don't think I will be buying anymore. But, it is an interesting idea, and the show itself appears interesting.

I watch TV on my PC as I don't have a tv set, but eh...
Maybe they could provide mpeg2 files or better dvd images...
